I'm glad to use your i18n plug-in because i need to internationalize my application which use datable. However it seems that there is no actual way to internationalize errors message (i didn't find it into oLanguage).

This is the beginning of the file .js i use :
* File: jquery.dataTables.js
* Version: 1.6.1
* CVS: $Id$

    Hi AxelH,

    Very interesting! I honestly hasn't considered internationalising the error messages - my thoughts on this were that all text which can be see by the end user should be initernationalisable - but the error messages won't be, so don't mater quite as much. However, it does make development using DataTables for non-English speakers that bit harder (coupled with the the fact that the documentation is available in only one language...).

    I will have a think about the best way to do this, and what (if any) impact / overhead it will have on DataTables. It might fit nicely into the next point revision thoughts I have for DataTables.
