[eclipse-dev] translating messages in the log?


Do we have a guide line in Eclipse clarifying/suggesting whether messages
logged to Eclipse log must/should/should not/must not be translated?

I seem to recall that we use to translate all messages except the debug
output, and it was relaxed later that we should but do not have to.
Recently a bug has been
opened and John commented that we should generally not translate log
messages.  From the log we see Help, PDE, Team do translate their logged

Personally I think the messages should be translated, especially that users
can see them in the log view, and they are really the first line of support
for themselves.
