------------------------------------

             Summary: Fix problems in English messages disclosed by a localization audit.
                 Key: DERBY-5879
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5879
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Task
    Affects Versions: 10.10.0.0
            Reporter: Rick Hillegas


The team which is localizing the 10.9 messages would like to audit our existing messages to
ensure that they are easy to translate. A quick glance at their audit results shows many issues
in the following categories:

1) Multi-line messages whose formatting confuses the translators. Translators tend to be language
experts and not experts in the arcana of how Java properties files are formatted. I am hoping
that these issues can be addressed by simply prefixing the multi-line messages with comments,
explaining the arcane formatting.

2) Grammar, punctuation, and capitalization problems. I think we should just clean these up.

I am filing this issue as a place to hold patches which address issues raised by the localization
audit.
