However, i do also understand that the list that's now in the Github repository was actually produced using automated translation, which potentially could yield different results compared to extracting the list of country names from the document (or the respective source file)?

The file I provided was obtained by querying the source organization directly through their communication channels until reaching a person able to provide the official translations in a usable format. It wasn't automatically translated by our organization.
