I have finished the Korean translation.I just want to say thank you for developing such a good plugin.And I hope it will be translated into more languages so that many WordPress users can use it conveniently. Classic Widgets 한국어 번역을 모두 마쳤습니다.좋은 플러그인을 개발해 주어서 고맙다는 인사를 전하고 싶습니다.그리고 보다 많은 언어로 번역되어 많은 워드프레스 사용자들이 편리하게 사용할 수 있기를 바랍니다.

The gutenberg plugins simply don't work at all. It is an absolute disaster that was never tested whatsoever yet pushed to production. Glad we have this plugin to fix the mess as a temporary stopgap while finding a new CMS.
