    126 Do not use an automatic translation service, when these strings are being translated the meaning also needs to be retained. If you are unsure of the meaning, contact a mentor via IRC for assistance, and continue with other strings, until you get a reply.

    127127
    128 Some strings contain a special sequence as follows: %(some_name)s this sequence must be retained within the translated string. The sequence always starts with a %( combination and ends with a ) followed by a singe letter, normally a s. As already stated this sequence must be retained exactly as written but the order within the string may change, depending upon the sentence structure of the target language. Again, if you are unsure contact a mentor via IRC for assistance.

    130 To complete a task you should make an effort to translate all strings but occasionally it is not possible to translate some strings. A task will be accepted so long as more than 90% have been translated and a reasonable explanation of why the untranslated strings were left is provided. The final say on this is will be left up to the mentor.
