Customize Password complexity message displayed to users

I am running group policies on my server 2012 clients are windows 7, 8 and 10

When a user changes password and they do not enter it correctly and they get the following
Unable to update the password. The value provided for the new password does not meet the length, complexity, or history requirements of the domain

IS it possible to change this message displayed and have it as:

Passwords must contain characters from three of the following five categories:

Uppercase characters of European languages (A through Z, with diacritic marks, Greek and Cyrillic characters)

Lowercase characters of European languages (a through z, sharp-s, with diacritic marks, Greek and Cyrillic characters)

Base 10 digits (0 through 9)

Nonalphanumeric characters: ~!@#$%^&*_-+=`|\(){}[]:;"'<>,.?/

Any Unicode character that is categorized as an alphabetic character but is not uppercase or lowercase. This includes Unicode characters from Asian languages.

Hi David

The above link wont work as it is for xp and it clearly states ("Please note that GINA DLLs are ignored in Windows Vista and later. "). Seeking clarification on this

The second link https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/tristank/2005/07/18/custom-password-filters/ states These guidelines provide technical requirements for federal agencies implementing digital identity services and are not intended to constrain the development or use of standards outside of this purpose. please clarify
