[Mailman-i18n] Help please with another combined variable

Hello again :)
I'm not sure how to handle the translation of this string:
reference: ⑤ Mailman/Deliverer.py:79
Original: ⌘0 Welcome to the \"%(realname)s\" mailing list%(digmode)s
If the whole variable is "list%(digmode)s", which i can write as "%
(digmode)slist" if necessary, I'm still unsure whatn to do, because
"mailing list" is an entire term in my language. We actually
translate it as "shared mailbox". So I can't separate the two words
"mailing" and "list" in the translation. I have to translate them
together, as one term.
I had a look at the source code, to see if that would help:
msg = Message.UserNotification(
_('Welcome to the "%(realname)s" mailing list%(digmode)s'),
but I'm afraid that doesn't make anything clearer to me.
Does this string say:
"Welcome to the [name] mailing list [in digest mode]"
"Welcome to the [name] mailing [list in digest mode]?"
If it's the second, and I'm not allowed to translate the "list" part,
I can't translate the string correctly. :(
Thankyou for any help you can offer with this. :)
