This repository contains copies of the FrameXML/GlobalStrings.lua and GlueXML/GlueStrings.lua files extracted from the various localized game clients for World of Warcraft.

These files contains Blizzard's UI text translations for each locale. GlobalStrings.lua is loaded as part of the game UI, and its contents are available to addons. GlueStrings.lua is only loaded for the login and character/realm selection UI, so its contents are not available to addons, but may be of interest as a reference when localizing addons.

Locale code Language name English language name Regions where available
deDE Deutsch German Europe
enUS English English Americas, Europe
esES Español (España) Spanish (Spain) Europe
esMX Español (América Latina) Spanish (Latin America) Americas
frFR Français French Europe
itIT Italiano Italian Europe
ptBR Português (Brasil) Brazilian Portuguese America, Europe
ruRU Русский Russian Europe
koKR 한국어 Korean Korea
zhCN 简体中文 Simplified Chinese China
zhTW 繁體中文 Traditional Chinese Taiwan

enGB and ptPT files are not included here as they are duplicates of enUS and ptBR, respectively. Querying GetLocale() in a European client even returns enUS in English and ptBR in Portuguese. If either locale is ever discovered to differ from its "base" locale, as esMX differs from esES, it will be added here.
