Hi all,
KDE Frameworks 5 applications will install their translations into 
/usr/share/locale/$LANG the same way KDE 4 applications do. Then they will 
conflict. See also FS#41684 for more info.

To fix this, we moved KDE 4 translations into /usr/share/locale/kde4/$LANG. 
This has been simple as rebuilding kdelibs and ALL applications using it.

We rebuilt every package[1] which depend on kdelibs (directly or not), but 
someone could be missing. Please report any official package with a broken 

You will need to rebuild your AUR packages that use kdelibs.

Packages are in [testing] right now.
