Thankyou. So in the string:

reference:	⑤	Mailman/Deliverer.py:79
Original:	⌘0	Welcome to the \"%(realname)s\" mailing list%(digmode)s

I can separate the word "list" from list%(digmode)s? Or not?

I don't know if I'm supposed to translate the word "list" or not,  
whether it's part of the variable, and thus not to be translated, or  
whether it's part of the translatable string.

I would like to be able to translate this string as (in my language):

"Welcome to using the mailing list \"%(realname)s\" %(digmode)s "

because that is correct syntax for us, but I don't know if that is OK  
or not.
