We only have to pay our attentions to leading/trailing `\n'
in the corresponding msgstr fields, in other words, those line
breaks in the original strings are the matter of an appearance
in English, we can change the position where a line is wrapped,
although I'm still not sure if I understand your sentence

For the present, only the following suggestions have been

  #: ../thunar/thunar-permissions-chooser.c:620
  msgid ""
  "Do you want to apply your changes recursively to\n"
  "all files and subfolder below the selected folder?"
  msgsuggestion ""
  "Please replace subfolder with subfolders"

  #: ../plugins/thunar-sbr/thunar-sbr-remove-renamer.c:177
  msgid "Remove _From Positon:"
  msgsuggestion "Remove _From Position:"

  #: ../plugins/thunar-sbr/thunar-sbr-remove-renamer.c:212
  msgid "_To Positon:"
  msgsuggestion "_To Position"

The strings below aren't changed because I guess they're
the name of stock icons;

  #: ../thunar/thunar-stock.c:55
  msgid "Create"
  msgsuggestion "No accelerator?"

  #: ../thunar/thunar-stock.c:56
  msgid "Rename"
  msgsuggestion "No accelerator?"

As for the others, I think we have to discuss with Benedikt.
