The simplest way for me is to create a mod with Art Manager, in "source" create a folder named "Text_XX" where XX is your language (if the language is not translated in the vanilla game like Vietnamese, then I think any name can do).
Then select all .txt files in Art Manager, right-click, auto-create asset. Validate every single one, and build your mod. In your build directory (usually My Games\Titan Quest - Immortal Throne\custommaps) you'll find an archive of your texts.
When you need to update a .txt, just rebuild your mod after, you'll get an updated .arc easily.

There are other tools that can build directly a .arc from source files, but I find them clunky to use.

Here's an example

Thanks. And soa, could u create more epic and legend items in your mod, especially club weapon with piercing dmg? I think gladiator's weapon is good model for club.

OK, but I don't know what you mean by "gladiator's weapon".
