    Description

      The current .rc files have a lot of message concatenation. It not only is difficult for translation team (WPTG) to handle translation correctly, but also require layout adjustment to position each pieces of a sentence in a particular coordinate. The result also is not perfect even after adjustment. There are usually large gaps between pieces of messages.

      We should avoid these issues by making the dialogs more localization friendly. For example, use 1 single message and allow it to wrap by itself at appropriate boundary.

      If you could do this for jdk7, it would be superb. If not, then please target jdk8.
