.po file query

Hello :)

I am currently translating the file diffutils-2.8.7 into Vietnamese for The Translation Project at the University of Montréal. I've encountered the following string, which I want to clarify with you.

This string uses the variables SKIP1 and SKIP2 twice.

msgid   "-i SKIP1:SKIP2  --ignore-initial=SKIP1:SKIP2"

However, the following string refers to FILE variables as well, when explaining the above string.

msgid ""      
"Skip the first SKIP1 bytes of FILE1 and the first SKIP2 bytes of FILE2."

Should the first string have FILE1 and FILE2 in place of one set of SKIPs?

Please clarify this so I can translate it correctly. At the moment the second string, as an explanation of the first (which is the structure in that section of the file) does not make sense.

Thankyou for making this file available.
