47 cbiesinger 1.2 fileAlreadyExistsError=%S could not be saved, because a file already exists with the same name as the '_files' directory.\n\nTry saving to a different location.

I see no reason not to write '%S_files' (or %1$S_files as it would have to be).

Out of curiosity, is there anything that prevents the line from being something like:
fileAlreadyExistsError=%1$S could not be saved because a file named %1$S_files already exists, this name is needed for a directory to store associated files.\n\nTry saving with a different name or to a different location.

personally, I'd rather just use:
fileAlreadyExistsError=Can not save because a file named %S_files already exists, this name is needed for a directory to store associated files.\n\nTry saving with a different name or to a different location.
