Is this localized at all? If so what language?

While there are some strange characters in that output too (again on a
localised string), it also shows that it's using an auto-null sink.

This happens when we cannot open the real sound h/w

Can you supply:

sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*


pulseaudio -k; pulseaudio -vvvvv

output? (for the second one, you may have to do:
echo "autospawn=no" >> ~/.pulse/client.conf
in order for it to actually start on the command line and not be
autospawned by something else!)
