[Q] Apktool can't build latest Hangouts 2.0.303

I have been having some issues trying to mod Hangouts, I always start by decoding, then rebuilding, to test. Now I've tried several different versions of apktool and aapt, I've tried the Hangouts.apk from my phone as well as the one linked here: and I always get the same errors, this is what happens when I try to build:

Code:

Now the "Apostrophe not preceded by \ (in %1$d Hangout'ta %2$d ileti)" error is easy to fix, but it still fails with the rest of the errors.

Has anyone been able to get the latest Hangouts to decode and rebuild with apktool? And if so what version of apktool and aapt did you use?

And remember, I didn't edit anything, this was just a "decode and rebuild" test before I actually start modding.
