Include input field as parameter $1 in message "sf createcategory makesubcategory"
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

The message "sf createcategory makesubcategory" ends with a colon and is followed by an input field for a category name. It should preferrably allow the input to be included as a parameter such as $1, so as to not force languages having specific word orders to twist their sentences in a way that allows the name to be at the end of, or behind, the sentence.

Depending on the page layout, which I don't know, this may of course be a bit tricky.

As with bug 18560, I don't think this is necessary nor standard, but RTL folks can correct me.
I've now documented it https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?oldid=5196990 and I doubt you wanted a dropdown (potentially very big) to be in the middle of the sentence; surely it can't be done just for one label out of three in the special page.
