Original: ⌘0 unable to rename '%s' reason: %s

Your strings can be terse, but this one could be misunderstood due to
lack of punctuation. I suggest:

- unable to rename '%s' reason: %s
+ unable to rename '%s' - reason: %s
OR
+ unable to rename '%s'; reason: %s

This also applies to:

flag: ⑤ c-format
Original: ⌘0 The options are:\n
-a - --all Scan the entire file, not just the data section\n
-f --print-file-name Print the name of the file before each string
\n
-n --bytes=[number] Locate & print any NUL-terminated
sequence of
at\n
-<number> least [number] characters (default 4).\n
-t --radix={o,d,x} Print the location of the string in base 8, 10
or 16\n
-o An alias for --radix=o\n

-e --encoding={s,S,b,l,B,L} Select character size and endianness:\n
s = 7-bit, S = 8-bit, {b,l} = 16-bit, {B,L} = 32-
bit\n
-h --help Display this information\n
-v --version Print the program's version number\n

- -n --bytes=[number] Locate & print any NUL-terminated
sequence of
at\n

+ ???

What is the last part of this string supposed to be? It looks like at least
one word is missing.

    the 1st and 2nd part were forwarded to: http://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6615

    the 3rd part is invalid, you should combine this line with the next line, so it will be: "Locate & print any NUL-terminated sequence of at least [number] characters (default 4)."
