RE: Can not translate %s%s%s

For what it's worth, in Opus we use the FormatMessage function which supports indexed parameters using %1, %2, %3 etc. By default the parameters are strings but sprintf-style modifiers can be used to support other parameter types (%1!ld! for unsigned long, etc).

Presumably it would be a simple thing to write a program or script to "convert" all the existing translations to indexed parameters, and then the translators could go through and update strings as necessary.
