    Curmudgeon's version is fine. This is not a general point, but a specific one about the IT business: your company may have house rules about what 'caution' means. For example, the one I worked for reserved 'caution' for warnings about malfunctioning software; 'warning' for warnings about malfunctioning hardware, and 'danger' for warnings about danger to life and limb.

    So, in a translation you should check whether words like these have special in-house meanings.

    ps
    General note: this isn't a general point about the difference between words related to 'caution'.
