A column marked as Loc is actually 17 columns with one column per language and a bitmask in the end.

There can be multiple languages filled in -- i.e. multi-language DBCs are possible.

Blizzard no longer uses multiple columns for Localization since Cataclysm. From there on, there just is one column with a string in the language given by the locale directory. This conserves space and prevents errors with missing locale data as present on a lot of modded servers, where a locale_i DBC is taken and edited, packed and distributed, therefore resulting in empty strings for all clients not using locale_i. In Cataclysm and up, there just will be wrong language strings.
