I'll extend Michael's answer a bit: The English message file is then
converted to an include file and compiled into the compiler as the default
messages (i.e. "errore.msg" doesn't need to be read at run time, although
it's possible to enforce that using the respective command line option).
Furthermore, some parts and their associated comments are also included in
the documentation.
