Some interface element names include template tokens

The names of some user interface elements include tokens which are variables whose value is determined dynamically by the context. Tokens are represented by a number enclosed in percent signs (e.g. "%1%"). Tokens must be included in the translation, but because different languages have different grammar rules, translators need to be aware of the type of information being handled in any given variable in any given context.

The table below enumerates in English the elements whose names include tokens and for each gives a brief explanation of the nature of the variable and the context in which it occurs.
