Yes, I agree with conflict -> Konflikt.

Well, it's a bit confusing.  AFAICS the verb (rename/modify) goes into
the parens at the start, and the participle (renamed/modified) goes into
the fourth %s.  So if you decided to *not* translate the
"(rename/delete)" conflict description, you would have to translate
"renamed" (to fit it into the sentence) but not "rename".

Which would be really hard to maintain.  So let's not do that.  I think
it's better if you translate them all.
