Comment (by hnla):

 Quick feedback:

 Sounding cold and attempting to make programs seem more human and
 personable? I'm never sure whether short, clear, concise, to the point is
 necessarily to be regarded as cold, being as informative as possible about
 the issue though is always good.

 'When' - as mentioned - ought to be removed, it's the sort of language I
 would use but is largely redundant, I also wonder how readily that

 On the matter of translation/localization does our original string present
 problems for translators if it does include any ? vernacular which
 requires translators to either hunt down a equivalent or re-write the
 string in which case should we not then be keeping things as
 straightforward and possibly 'cold' to aid translation - but translating
 is not a process I'm that familiar with.

 I think I would err on the side of perfunctory strings but with as much
 detail as to 'why' as possible.
