Unfortunately, this is one of the only remaining bits of htsearch that
has not been internationalized. We'd really like some suggestions
on how to tackle this, hopefully without it becoming a mammoth job.
A big part of the problem is that different languages will have different
requirements for word order, so it may not be a simple matter of replacing
built-in strings with config attributes, although that would be a useful
first step.

For now, though, your only option is to edit htsearch/ to change
the error messages to your language.
