I may have said this before, but I'll say it again:  I think 2) is the
worst option of all.  It is actually so bad it should not be considered
at all, in my opinion.  In both 2) and 3) the string freeze is broken,
but with 2) the translators do not even get a chance to translate.

With option 2), zero end users will see the message in their own
language, but with 3) there is a good chance that >50% of end users see
the translated message.

I vote for number 3.
