In the file src/main.c, line 1780, there is a Plural-Form in the strings "%d line was/were %s", where %d is the number of line(s) and %s can have value "truncated" or "wrapped". The problem is that both words (truncated and wrapped) may have different spelling in singular and plural forms.  That's my case in Brazilian Portuguese.


I propose to duplicate the Plural-Form string to "%d line was/were truncated" and "%d line was/were wrapped", removing the "%s". This will increase one string for the translator, but one will be able to translated the plural-form correctly.

See attached diff for a patch of this proposal

Also, when/if fix this bug, please update translation file in Translation Project.
