Why you should i18n your error messages

This is what happens when you don’t i18n your error messages:

Now, I don’t expect to find the English version of a Chinese game
called “File Not Found”, but still. :slight_smile:

What exactly does someone do when he or she i18ns?

WTF?

Thus spake “mehrunes”:

i18n = internationalization, i.e., you provide translations which
match the user’s locale. Possibly the person designing the sign
would have realized what was going on if the error message had been
in Chinese.
