Multiple property files, or one large one

I am just starting internationalization on a Java application, and am externalizing my Strings into property files. My question is: what is better, to store all the Strings in one large property file (making it easier to edit, and reduce duplicates) or to have a property file for each GUI Widow/Dialog etc. My concern with one large file is that there may be a performance hit?
