Which language? The exception constants are defined in IB_Header.pas and
the messages associated with them are in IB_Constants.pas. There are
translated versions of ib_constants.pas for several languages already...see
ib_constants-ger.pas for German...

There is a TI-sheet on the subject of error-handling (download from
TechInfo page of the website).
