 I think exception classes are not the point for internationalization. See
 also [ Error handling in
 The problem with the what() text of exception classes is that it can not
 fit everybody's need.

 I suggest to catch the exceptions in the user's code and perform any
 needed action there (translation, error message, etc.) depending on the
 type of the exception. Or live with the text which what() returns.
