Screenshot with untranslated string

Evince shows untranslated error messages, coming from poppler, so I think it's time to add localization support to poppler. Or to ask every software author using poppler to not to show any "low-level" error messages :).
Comment 1 Pino Toscano 2014-07-06 10:21:58 UTC
On the other hand, evince is basically taking the error string from poppler, while it could provide own strings for the various error types.
This way, it could also show more friendly/etc error messages to the user, instead of the "possibly technical" poppler ones.
