The pgExpress Driver distribution contains two versions: a standard one, English only, and a Multilanguage version. Functionality is identical, except that the standard only contains the English (enUS) language, and the multilanguage version contains all languages from the table below:
Table 3.2. Embedded languages in this release (multilanguage driver only)

To set localized messages, choose among the following methods:
Do nothing!... If you use the multilanguage driver and it already has the same language reported by your OS,

locale\LL\LC_MESSAGES with a
xx_XX.mo file that matches your

A language code usually consists of a two-letter lowercase language code, an underscore, and a two-letter uppercase country code. On Windows, this is not case sensitive, but on Linux, it is. German in Germany becomes de_DE, English in England becomes en_GB, etc.
If you translate to a new language, please consider contributing it to other users by
sending the file to us. I this case,
fill your translator's data at the
.po file header if you want.
