i used the source and found the following class: 
"org.opencms.workplace.CmsWorkplaceMessages" The javadoc explained a lot 
to me of how the locales of the workplace are managed. Indeed there is a 
strict naming convention and for every i18n-file wich should be loaded 
there must be a module (see 

I hope this helps others facing this problem.

best regards
