Hi Naoto

Thank you for the quick response! We will file a ticket later today.

Shall we make an effort on fixing and translating the strings, or you prefer to take care of it at Oracle?

An entry for TRT need to be added to this file, and assign to both "Europe/Istanbul" and "Asian/Istanbul". This also need to be updated for other locales.
