*IMPORTANT* Notes to all translators

Salam All,
I think all of us made a mistake in the naming of
variables during translation, here is a note about
that from the Linux-Mandrake l10n page:

" Sometimes it is needed to change the order of the
words when doing the translation, but when formatters
(those %s %d etc) are used you cannot simply change
them, that will make the programs crash! You need to
use a special specifier x$ (with x=number) to tell
what was its previous position (1-based). Eg:

msgid "if you do %s %d times, then you will %s\n"
msgstr "you will %3$s if you do %1$s %2$d times\n"   "

So please go back & correct your files.
