Quote from EatsbrainsTo answer the first question, I am running enUS translation. As for the second question, I run a commit monitor to monitor changes in the SVN repositories and grab new versions from that. If you say to grab the zip files now, I will do that and let you know if that solves the problem on my end.
Yea, most developers and the wowace web team will suggest that you get zips over directly from the svn. And the new translations system is one of the reasons way. You should be able to set the CurseClient to download alphas if you really want to be bleeding edge. But on of the upsides to the new alpha/beta/release type system we have going on, is that I can code stuff at work when I'm bored, commit it, then go home and test it hours or days later and be confident that I'm not breaking a large portion of the user base. But that said, the translation stuff should be all spiffied up if you grab the latest alpha zip.
