I fixed the text in the image info boxes, because the number of parameters in the danish translation and some line breaks were incorrect.

I remember looking at poEdit at some point and concluding it was easier
and more safe (in terms of keeping translation 100% accurate) just to
keep merging the changes from Tortoise.pot into Tortoise_da.pot and
using my favorite text editor.

I'll start using "msgfmt --check" before I commit any changes in the
future. Then we won't run into any problems.
