The question is more whether native English readers will think it
looks weird or is even wrong.  I personally don't care how it is done
as long as it is consistent.

Sometimes it is handled differently in templates I translate - even
within the same string.  When I make recommendations on how to improve
the English text I would like to know in which direction I should make
