What objects can and cannot be translated
Is there a master list somewhere that lists what Archer objects can or cannot be translated? We are on 5.5 SP1 P1 and recently discovered that we cannot translate text boxes. We already new about notifications and mail merge templates. What I haven't been able to find is whether any of this has changed in the subsequent releases. Where can I find a list for a given release?

The ability to translate content (i.e. the contents within a text box), is the last thing on the list for Archer. Reason being is there is no good way to do. Would you trust something like Google Translate to 100% accurrately translate sensitive and exact contract language, or recovery plan language, or policies? I wouldn't....
There should be several helpful docs on the Everything 5.5. SP2 site around Multilingual that give you the info you are looking for.
The more I reread what I posted, the more I realize that I didn't explain myself well. I'm not looking for Archer to do the translations. What I'm looking for is what Archer objects support globalization. In other words, what objects can I do language translations in through Archer admin (in our version) or export/import (in later versions). In our version, text boxes, custom objects, mail merge templates, and notifications are not supported. I don't see anything that indicates this has changed in the latest version. It would be nice not to have to search through release notes for the current list.
In addition, it looks like the 256 character limit on non-default languages has been lifted, but I'm not quite sure. We have questions that easily exceed that limit in other languages and we're stuck in version 5.5 SP1 P1. I can't quite tell if that's no longer the case, and as of what version.
