Usage

Translated strings (all of these need to be enclosed by spaces):

  • // is converted to " or "; used for alternative choices (e.g. "<unnamed 1> or title").
  • ++ is converted to a comma with a trailing space (", "); used for listing parameters which are separate but work the same (e.g. "contentA1, contentB1").
