It seems that the text for those buttons is, as you suspect, buried in
the sources. You might find it almost as easy to use the SimpleDialog
module, which seems to be more flexible:

>>> s=SimpleDialog.SimpleDialog(root,text="Continue?",
... buttons=("Yes","No"),default=0,cancel=1,title="test")
>>> s.go()
