Wording of Error Dialogs


I plan to do a major rewording and unification of the error messages of
a project that I am working on. Since we want to be conform with the
HIG, I would like to know if there is a policy on this.

For me there are the following possibilities:

1. "Failed to open %s."

2. "Couldn't open %s."

3. "Can't open %s."

4. "%s could not be opened."

The "writing for translation" section of the documentation style guide
doesn't recommend the use of the passive tense. So which way to go?
