Do you mean expansions on the terse messages, or translations from another language? There aren't really any expansions available: the messages are supposed to be clear in themselves. If you really want to know why you got one you might be able to look it up in the source code, but generally the best thing is to ask a few times on this list, and then you'll pick up the style, and will generally just recognize them.
