      Go to messages, search for a message.
      Switch to german (after the translation of 'addressedto' will be done). (which won't be done during integration testing, so just make sure everything is fine in English)
      The column header should state "Von" and "An".

      Description

      The term "to" and the term "to" are different in some languages.
      Let me explain. "From 1:00 to 3:30" and "from Alice to Bob" look different e.g. in German.
      "Von 1:00 bis 3:30" and "Von Alice an Bob".
      In the messages interface "to" meaning "until" is displayed, where it should symbolize "addressed to". This leads to a weird and apparantly unprofessionally internationalised user experience.

      I tend to insert a core string called "addressedto". It affects just messages/lib.php

      FULL STEPS
      Make sure you have a conversation in messages you will find by searching.
      Open messages in german. ("Deutsch (de)").
      By using "Search people and messages" ("Personen und Mitteilungen suchen") search and find your message in the results.

      WHAT YOU EXPECTED
      The columns representing the sender and the receiver are entiteled "Von" and "An"

      WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS
      The columns representing the sender and the receiver are entiteled "Von" and "Bis"

      "Bis" having the meaning of "until".
