Translating non-English error messages into English

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/08/06

For a long time, I’ve persuading people to install English versions of their operating systems (especially on server side) at least for some parts of their environment.

The main reason is that searching for English error messages gives you a much bigger chance of finding the cause than non-English ones.

I’m still standing by that recommendation, but life has become a bit easier because of these two sites that offer quite good translations of Windows Error messages in many languages to English:

I like the latter a bit more because of the overview, but the former more because of the catalog.

The way I landed there was because of a search for “Cannot SetData on a frozen OLE data object” which I bumped into for one of my C# .NET projects.
