    Default [Question] Buff description

    Is the buff description the same on all client locale's? I've been asked in the past for RU support.

    I am aiming to use 'string.match' on the buff description to match a word, but the word in code will be written in English, And I don't want to restrict the addon client.

    Alternatively I can add the word(s) used to the filter list and have the client translate them.

    Thank you.

    Always maintain your client patched in all the languages, so you can check these things quickly yourself! =)

    /print Inspect.Buff.Detail("player", Inspect.Buff.List("player"))

    18:14:04: b80000005C833FCA2 = table: 0x8411bbf8 {
    18:14:04: caster = "u05508000032BC061",
    18:14:04: icon = "Data/\UI\item_icons\pick4.dds",
    18:14:04: id = "b80000005C833FCA2",
    18:14:04: type = "B595DA7DBAFC25D52",
    18:14:04: name = "Erz aufspüren",
    18:14:04: abilityNew = "A4211DDD7A2E97B42",
    18:14:04: description = "Zeigt die Orte aller Erzquellen auf der Minikarte an.",
    18:14:04: },

    18:15:51: b8000000590C24D45 = table: 0x364e7790 {
    18:15:51: caster = "u05508000032BC061",
    18:15:51: icon = "Data/\UI\item_icons\pick4.dds",
    18:15:51: id = "b8000000590C24D45",
    18:15:51: type = "B595DA7DBAFC25D52",
    18:15:51: name = "Track Ore",
    18:15:51: abilityNew = "A4211DDD7A2E97B42",
    18:15:51: description = "Shows the location of all Ore on the minimap.",
    18:15:51: },

    So, the description appears to be in local langauge. The type and abilityNew fields are consistent, depending on just what it is you want to match these could be used.

    Im trying to move away from ability names/id's as they have to be maintained, either by me or the user.

    Im looking for "absorb" or "Absorb" from the description plus a bit more detail from the buff, for my absorb to heal converter.

    Currently works, so all I or the user needs to do is translate these two words.
