Sheer criticism gets us absolutely nowhere. As Sneakeye said, there are tens of thousands of descriptions and other text lines in the game that are all fine and if you want to nitpick about the handful of errors that made it through public and internal testing (some are the result of buggy dev tools that only appear after release) then be my guest, but beyond complaining there actually are threads and other ways where you can report these issues so they can be looked at.
The main goal of the patches is to offer continued support to the game to keep it fresh and alive and to make it more fun and balanced as time goes by. UI and localization polish is definitely a concern, but not the top priority. Gameplay is. If the game didn't have these community patches it would've died out years ago, instead of being more popular now than it's ever been.
an officially 'finished' game, one people pay money for, developed by a professional studio, should be held to a bit of higher standard than this
I already had issues with Relic's apparent disregard with consistency and quality when it came to adding community maps, skins etc before all this, but now the game definitely feels even more messy and more like a small mod some guy made in his spare time that's been applied to the vanilla game
