Few questions:
1. How to decide if a text should or shouldn't be translated? Is it only error message as stated above?
   I assume (j)git output should stay parsable and some texts mustn't be translated. Right?

2. How to find, at runtime, the set of classes where to perform the injection of translated texts?
   Is this already limited to particular packages only?

3. I suppose an annotation on a field should be used to mark it as translatable?
