Same here. That's a severe misconfiguration. Whoever runs into this error condition will know what they did wrong.

First of all, these messages are incomplete.

Then, chances are so low that these messages occur in practice that there's no point translating them into German. These should rather be "internal error <unique-id>", to make them searchable.
