Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 864725
Use of variables in strings prevent proper translation
Last modified: 2013-12-16 09:23:23 EST
Description of problem:
The following string cannot be translated properly, because the use of variables:
"A label was not provided during %s creation; therefore, a label of '%s' was automatically assigned. If you would like a different label, please delete the %s and recreate it with the desired label."
"...delete the %s and recreate it..." Depeding on what %s will be replaced with, there are several possible translations for "the" and "it" in many languages.
Better would be to have this string translated several times with all possible values for %s visible to translators.
%s is a user entered value that will not be translated. We can investigate how to put better variables in our strings but you will see lots of cases where we do variable substitution based on user-input data.

getting rid of 6.0.0 version since that doesn't exist
Closing all i18n bus due to ne architecture. The goal is still a localized UI and CLI, but we will do this via a new round of testing.
