Note the placeholder for the numeric value added, and then the conditional plural form in one item (e.g. see in French and Spanish), and this numeric value is not necessarily at start of sentence (e.g. see in Spanish where there's a leading punctuation, some languages may place the number at end or in the middle, depending on how the past participle is translated, possibly by a verb at start and the noun at end).

Note all languages have distinct plural forms (notably several East Asian and South-East languages do not use them, or mark the plural with an adverb or adjective or repetition of the noun)
Slavic languages, Celtic languages and some Indic languages (notably but not only) have more than 2 plural forms depending on the number value and the kind of number: enumerable or not, last finite or partitive, estimated, and may even change the grammatical case between 0/1/more or depending on the plurality of some power of 10 with or without additional digits after...

Here suppose that this is an integer number for a finite enumerable quantity, but the counter may be interpreted as "partitive" (from an unspecified total not given in the sentence), here we suppose it is partitive because that message is not displayed when all has been completed and there's nothing more to translate. If it was complete the number could have a leading definite article...
