Prevent translations exceeding maximum length to be submitted
The .lang file format uses a meta tag to specify a maximum length of the string: https://github.com/mozilla-l10n/langchecker/wiki/.lang-files-format We should acknowledge that and prevent users from submitting strings that are too long. One possible UX for such strings would be to show a Twitter-like countdown instead of the standard "current-translation-length/original-string-length". We should also remove the MAX_LENGTH tag from the string comment.
