Please do NOT split sentences in several translatable messages like this.
Sentences can only be properly translated when they're complete sentences.
Please see
for more information about this problem.

In addition, please never hard code file names and/or file paths into
translateable messages. Then each and every translation will also have to be
updated should the file name or file path have to be changed later, and that's
surely not good design. Use a *printf-style approach instead, and use %s for the
file name, so that the translateable message will be:

"Could not start because there is no %s file."

or, alternatively,

"Could not start because there is no '%s' file."
