Internationalization - Multiple resource bundle files, or one large one

I am just starting internationalization on a Java application, and am externalizing my Strings into property (resource bundle) files. My question is: what is better, to store all the Strings in one large property file (making it easier to edit, and maintain) or to have a property file for each GUI Widow/Dialog etc. My concern with one large file is that there may be a performance hit. Any advice?

It is always better to have modular approach even for properties files, having a single file will create issue in future when your application grows, and also performanace and feasability issue.
So i will suggest to have multiple bundle based on module,
