178 - Language selection no longer works

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Selecting a language other than Common or Orcish.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Speech in a character's racial language is instead made in Common or Orcish, depending on the faction. This happens both when the language option for an event is specifically set to the Racial Language and when giving the Racial Language a 100% probability with the Random Language selected.

What version of the product are you using?

Do you have an error log of what happened?

Please provide any additional information below.
It seems the function that select a language was changed in autumn 2012. This thread has some details: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6572360462

To summarize what seems the key point of the thread, in a post by Choonster (Frostmourne US): "It turns out that SendChatMessage now takes a languageID (the second return of GetLanguageByIndex) rather than a language name."
