Exactly. That was where my suggestion comes from. In such a case
you may want to raise these numbers so that the fixed part
(i.e. header that you are letting the translators insert their
version of these words) would fit.
As Duy points out in his response to your message, that widening
further needs to take into account how many display columns each
translated words and phrases occupies, not just its byte length.
