Hi, I have some doubts about translating one of these strings.

I kept PHASE capitalisation in the Spanish translation, but shall we
fully capitalise the translation for CREATED? I mean, in Spanish, this
should be something like: "DCCREATED parcheado a ser CREADO". I'd
prefer "DCCREATED a ser creado" because I think capitalisation is used
in this case because DCCREATED and CREATED are very similar.

Is CREATED the past participle for the verb create in this sentence? I
checked the German translation and CREATED isn't translated.

What does DCCREATED mean?
