    I haven't closed that ticket because while the issue reported has been fixed on my end, I am hitting new bugs.

    So no, r5 not loading is not your fault, Sara. I don't have r6 up yet as I'm still working on getting it to not throw errors.

    Once my code is working, I will upload a new alpha.

    Seems to be my fault, but can't load r5. Actually I'm rare on time so I'll try fix this when I'm back. :)

    Korean imported as well as zhTW (Traditional Chinese), esES too, so mexican spanish should work as well. Simplified Chinese had no translations to import and we are only left with a few untranslated things now.

    For future reference, the wowace/curseforge localization-tool allows to import lua-translation tables as they are used in old archy or the babble libs ;)

    Um, sorry, use r5 alpha instead. Sorry!

    back from awesome Weekend!

    @myrroddin please upload an alpha for testing. I'll try to do my best while using the german client to help.

    Awesome, Yoshimo, thanks! I could push an alpha of Archy to test, but I'm waiting on a few more dig site translations, if only in other languages.

    If you guys do not want to wait, let me know, and I'll push an alpha for testing.

    ... In other news, OMG, did I do some localization pruning in Alpha. Dropped almost 60 phrases, either to the new Babble, or using Blizzard's global strings, or they simply aren't in the code anymore, and never were removed.
