There is no rule nor is there consistency. :/ Some messages start with
lower case because the original english message is doing so, some do
not.

I do not think it makes sense to adopt rules like "error messages should
start with lower case" or something like that in translations so it's an error
to do so.

I will add this issue to my TODO list to fix this in the whole translation.

Thanks
