Most of these aren't from krb5-auth-dialog itself. They were extracted
from com_err .et files of MIT Kerberos itself to make them translatable.
Restricting the extraction to src/lib/krb5/error_tables instead of the
whole Kerberos source tree reduces the numboer of strings by a factor of
two. Limiting the list to the most common errors returned by the
Kerberos libs would make sense.

Except for the above URL and the README not yet.
