Thank you very much for your work on this!

I agree with all of your changes, only this:

The boxbackup documentation and the software itself is not
translated. These two words are configuration option in the config file,
and I would find translating them in debconf confusing, because a user
of the boxbackup package would have to "reverse translate" them to
understand what this debconf question is all about. I therefore ask this
option to be not translated.

The other suggestions look very reasonable to me. (and I feel a bit
silly now for writing lousy debconf templates ;).
