Dungeon names

Hi all,

I was thinking about the work on localizing one of my addon about keystone and dungeons.

Actually I am using the excellent system by Phanx here:
https://phanx.net/addons/tutorials/localize

and I have a lot of locale defined in this way:

Lua Code:
  1. if LOCALE == "itIT" then
  2.     -- Italian translations by me  
  3.     L["Mists of Tirna Scithe"]          = "Nebbie di Tirna Falcis"
  4.     L["The Necrotic Wake"]              = "Scia necrotica"
  5.     L["De Other Side"]                  = "Aldilą"
  6.     L["Halls of Atonement"]             = "Sale della redenzione"  
  7.     L["Plaguefall"]                     = "Piagafunesta"
  8.     L["Sanguine Depths"]                = "Profonditą sanguigne"
  9.     L["Spires of Ascension"]            = "Guglie dell'ascensione"
  10.     L["Theater of Pain"]                = "Teatro del dolore"
  11.     L["Tazavesh: Streets of Wonder"]    = "Strade delle meraviglie"
  12.     L["Tazavesh: So'leah's Gambit"]     = "Inganno di So'leah"
  13. [...]

Now I am wondering ...
Surely there will be some globals that define the names of the dungeons ...

So the questions are :
Are they defined somewhere ?

Where I can find them ? I really dont succeeded in finding them.
I only find things of 8 years old :/

Thanks really so much for any help.

If you haven't already, maybe a look at how the EncounterJournal works ..
https://www.townlong-yak.com/framexm...terJournal.lua

Looks like GetEncounterInfo return table has the name.

As for global strings, wow.tools has an up-to-date version:

https://wow.tools/dbc/?dbc=globalstrings

However, the owner of wow.tools is on the fence with continuing that site, so expect it to disappear at any point in the future.

Edit: looks like they're starting the transition in December: https://wow.tools/2022.php

Hi all,

thanks so much for your kind replies.

I'll dig more deeply in the these infos and I'll try to bypass the need of localization.lua for the names of the dungeons and for the most common strings as well ...

Thanks again.
