Switch to a single message to allow localisation.

I don't see a standardized way to do this; there is some HTML involved in displaying the link.
Comment 2 MZMcBride 2012-12-30 03:01:37 UTC
"Use lego"? I don't understand.

From <>:

Avoid patchwork messages

Languages have varying word orders, and complex grammatical and syntactic rules. Messages put together from lots of pieces of text, possibly with some indirection, are very hard, if not impossible, to translate. (MediaWiki internationalization people call such messages "lego".)

It is better to make messages complete sentences each, with a full stop at the end. Several sentences can usually much more easily be combined into a text block, if needed. When you want to combine several strings, use parameters - translators can order them correctly.
