The translog described in my email does not estimate Beta21, Beta31 and Beta32. The reason is because when one estimates the translog,, LnX1.LnX2 is the same as Ln.X2.LnX1, similarly for LnX2.LnX3=LnX3.LnX2 etc.. These cross products are not viewed as different from each other and hence only one of the pair is estimated.

But the homogeneity test requires equality between Beta(12)=Beta (21) etc in addition to the others..
If I understand you correctly, you have already imposed \beta_{ij} = \beta_{ji} -- that is, symmetry -- in your estimation. Hence, you cannot test your "fourth" restriction, as it holds by assumption. Hope that helps.
