No, the -r option for less is perfect, thank you.

Now I have another related question: what is exactly needed to make
this output to reflect the changes made? I could be wrong, but
editing+saving a file does not change the output, adding+committing
the edited file does not either, if I update the committish in the
file then this file counts as fully updated and therefore ignored, am
I right?

I am still talking about $ make ISOLANG=... check-translation.

Sorry if it's ages ago since I should have been aware of this, but I
have to retake the huge translation works still left.
