Hi Stephan,

I'm not sure on this. I think it is often good for users to know what
is going wrong on his computer, so I think messagen in their locale
are helpful.
However, if he/she asks for international help, then you need to
understand the problem, and don't rely on his english skills...

So, I vote for both: English and a brief, localised version.
