English term or phrase: The file will be available shortly.
well, I think we want to use some variation of "Datei" for "file", and maybe "verfugbar" for "available". this message is meant to say that a file on a computer is not yet availabel to be seen but will be soon.

German translation:Die Datei ist in Kürze verfügbar.
Explanation:
If you would rather not use Datei (for whatever reason), it would have to be Informationen, not Information. You also want to use the present tense, not the future tense (present tense in conjunction with a temporal clause or adjective implies the future and is more idiomatic. Use of the future tense in German is really quite rare and often an indication that the text was translated.)

Die Informationen sind in Kürze verfügbar.

Other options for "in Kürze" would be bald or demnächst.

Das File wird in Kuerze verfuegbar sein.


Explanation:
Some variation! ... and sounds horrible.

But File is a German word according to Deutscher Duden :
File (fail), das, - EDV bestimmte Art von Datei.

Surfing in the German Net I find nothing but:
Diese Seite ist voruebergehend nicht verfuegbar/erreichbar.

PS.: all my 'ue' should be 'u-Umlaut'!

Dieser Bestand wird in Kürze zur Verfügung stehen.


Explanation:
Use the different kinds of availability depending on the context, such as useable = "nutzbar"
available on screen = am Bildschirm angezeigt
etc.
