Description Xavier Conde 2009-03-31 15:43:20 EDT
The following string:

Current download cancelled, %sinterrupt (ctrl-c) again%s within %s%s%s seconds to exit.\n

needs some additional clarifications in order to be translated, specially the meaning of %s's in the string. A comment should be prepended to the source code with a sample output shown to the user.
Comment 1 James Antill 2009-03-31 16:29:01 EDT
I've added some comments upstream, the main thing to understand is that %s%s%s == "two" ... and the other %s value are just for highlighting.
Comment 2 Xavier Conde 2009-03-31 17:02:03 EDT

what characters are used for highlighting? Are they to be translated? Do they really need to be replaced in runtime?

Thanks for the fix, when will the PO files be available to transifex?
