Use placeholders for same text that appears in 8 strings
The translations (po files) contains some long strings that are almost the same.
There are 8 strings with this text:
Most likely this is a bug in the ALSA driver '%s'. Please report this issue to the ALSA developers.
This could just be in one string and then use placeholders to reuse it in the code.
One starts with:
ALSA woke us up to write new data to the device, but there was actually nothing to write. ...
And then the next string is exactly the same expect the "." is a "!" instead.
Then we have a string like:
snd_pcm_avail() returned a value that is exceptionally large: %lu byte (%lu ms). ...
And then the next string is exactly the same except "snd_pcm_avail()" is "snd_pcm_delay()". This could have been a placeholder "%s" to use the same text multiple times.
Using placeholders for those strings would greately improve the speed for translators to translate them and also later on change them so they only have to change the text in one string and not 8.
