> 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.
