Well, this is a perfect question for the list since others will like 
have more experience with this.

That message comes from swish-e, not from any of the templating output.  
It would be great if swish-e had customizable text output.

For now, you could go into SWISH/ and look for this 

sub page_header {
    my $results = shift;
    my $title = $results->config('title') || 'Search our site with Swish-e';
    my $message = $results->errstr;

    $message = $message
        ? qq[<br><font color="red">$message</font>]
        : '' ;

And maybe do this instead:

    my $message = $results->errstr;

    $message =~ s/no results/whatever/;

    $message = $message
        ? qq[<br><font color="red">$message</font>]
        : '' ;

There's lots of options there. You might have a hash to search through 
for replacement strings, for example.

Hope this helps.
