Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-5879:

    Attachment: derby-5879-08-aa-explainContext.diff

Attaching derby-5879-08-aa-explainContext.diff. This makes various changes to the messages
to clarify the context which translators need to do their job. Tests pass cleanly for me.

1) Comments added to messages.

2) String fragments replaced with hardcoded, non-translatable literals.

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