You can redifine on the fly all the error
messages flowing out of Jigsaw. The general principle is that all
error messages comming out of Jigsaw are filtered, and intercepted.
Jigsaw then uses internal requests to query some other resource for
generating the exact text of the error message. 

use an ErrorFilter. see the documentation at
