The following text has been added to the challenge description in order to eliminate an ambiguity:

Remark: The end of each sentence is determined by a letter pair ". " or "? " which
is not part of an ellipsis, an abbreviation, or a quotation attribution.

Just in case someone runs into the same problem as me: there is apparently a bug in some python versions, which causes the attached script handycipher_v3.1.py to fail. It happened with Python version 3.4.7 for me.

It is possible to fix the issue by replacing "string.maketrans" to "str.maketrans" at line 504 of the script.
