I'd say "Yay!".

Scratch specific Morphs such as StringFieldMorphs works okay, right?
That convertor complains sounds like it is about the Squeak Text
Morphs, that used to have m17n support (as opposed to i18n) but over

Even adding text to the sprite seems to do the right thing, project notes.... OK, after hitting everything I can think of that might involve text entry in Scratch it looks good.
