It is realistic to have localized error message? Most of the docs 
translations are not up to date and I am not sure if there would be enough 
translators to make it worth the effort.

Also, do we need to re-invent this particular wheel? I am sure there are 
many localization frameworks available. I think significant work would 
need to go into infrastructure that looks for out of date translations and 
makes work easy for the translators.
