I'm currently updating/fixing the (French translation of the) commdlg32 dialogs.

SIZE OF THE STANDARD DIALOG TEMPLATES"
However, e.g. in the standard "File Open" dialog, the standard size of
some labels (e.g. "File name") is too small for a correct translation,
and only the start of the message is shown (which is obviously wrong).

Does the warning only apply to all localized versions, or just for the
English one? What are the potential problems if a dialog is slightly
adapted to fit a particular language?
