We can have both of them for example:
     err no.   message
ERROR  #342 - "Column number too big"                     -- English
ERROR  #342 - "Numero de columna demasiado alto"          -- Spanish
FEHLER #342 - "Die Spaltennummer ist zu gross"            -- German
ERRO   #342 - "Numero de coluna alto demais"              -- Portuguese
ERRORE #342 - "Numero di colonna troppo alto"             -- Italian
                                                            Ciao, Jose'
