Follow-up Comment #1, bug #14750 (project freeciv):

Normal strings needs only 1 '%'.  However, string used as printf-style
format, must have 2 '%' to don't interpret the '%' as the start of an escape
sentence.  See '$ man 3 printf' for more explanation.

In the po files, you can guess the normal number of '%' thanks to the format
information:
* _no-c-format_ means normal string (so '%' needed).
* _c-format_ means format string (so 2 '%' needed).

Is that enough as explanation?
