    The message files are plain text files. The only thing that sets them apart from .txt files is that their extension is .msg and that the all the snippets of text are numbered.

    The first thing (.msg extension) is of no consequence: the files can simply renamed into whatever is handy for the translation process.
    The second thing (the numbered text snippets) cannot be changed, but should not pose a problem.

    example of a .msg file:
    Code:
    {100}{}{Burning Metal Barrel}
    {101}{}{The barrel contains burning paper and other flaming refuse.}
    {200}{}{Wooden Door}
    {201}{}{A door, made from wood.}
    {300}{}{Wooden Table}
    {301}{}{A table, made from wood.}
    {400}{}{Wooden Table}
    {401}{}{A table, made from wood.}
    {500}{}{Metal Barrel}
    {501}{}{An old barrel, made from steel.}
    {600}{}{Metal Barrel}
    {601}{}{An old barrel, made from steel.}
    {700}{}{Stack of Tires}
    {701}{}{A stack of ancient rubber tires. They have vulcanized and hardened, probably due to the heat.}
    {800}{}{Security Door}
    {801}{}{This door looks very secure. It provides protection from the outside world elements and dangerous creatures.}

    The MSG files can be opened and edited in Notepad.

    I don't remember such an item. Probably it was intended to be used in Ely town, which wasn't implemented in the final version.
