Yes, in that scenario, we would maintain a strings file per language, but normally this is just a couple of strings. Even doing this we've had some problems as error messages change from version to version, or some the tech writers decide to change an error message to be more descriptive. I guess in situations like this, there's no other choice, (unless you've got some serious developer buy in and error dialogs are assigned an ID based on the content they contain for example). BTW, comment is approved now ;-)

comment How to deal with automation naysayers?
Management is all for automation, the thing is they are disconnected from the daily goings on in the team, as long as the work gets done, they don't mind how. glowCoder made a good point in his answer about providing metrics like the number of bugs caught using automation, perhaps I should include the cost in terms of $ and time as well in such metrics. I don't think the team is scared of losing their jobs, just that a lot of them don't understand how the automation works, it's something of a magical black box to most, maybe time for another demo!

I like your point about tracking the number of bugs caught by automated tests. This is something I definetely need to start doing.
