sure enough. Hopefully, all our messages have a code, like ERR_XXXX, so 
whatever language the user has, it should be easy to get a clue about 
what's going on. (assuming we don't modify the number from version X to 
version Y of course !)

(I should check we add this ERR_XXXXX number in front of messages...)
