This doesn't clarify the question. The sentence formation would depend on the grammatical form of $5, e.g is it in present tense/past tense etc. We'll need the name of the interface message to find that out.

I don't understand your question. It's just a quotation of the literal name of the action, as seen for instance on Special:ListGroupRights, I don't think there's an interface message for it.

The literal name of the action will be coming in translated from somewhere. Obviously, the actions won't be edit or move when written in hindi. Someone somewhere must've translated it to सम्पादन, स्थानान्तरण or something different. Depending on what those translations are, the sentence structure needs to be made. For example: the word "edit" can be either a noun or a verb, and hence has two possible translations संपादन and संपादित करें. Without knowing how the translation of the action names has been done, sentence structure can't be made, since there's a chance it'll be grammatically incorrect.

E.g: In the original english $1 triggered $4, performing the action "$5" on $3. Actions taken: $6 ($7), putting in edit for $5 works, but edited or moved doesn't fit so well. Similarly for hindi.

I'm assuming that the translations for $5 come from interface messages (like everything else being translated). The question is, which messages?

PS: Bug 38753 may be relevant.

No, you're wrong, it's as I said (I had checked). Please look at [1]:

  • 16:22, 27 जुलाई 2012: (वार्ता) द्वारा Gorabali पर किये कार्य "edit" को दुरुपयोग फ़िल्टर फ़िल्टर 59 ने पकड़ा। फ़िल्टर द्वारा उठाया गया कदम: अस्वीकृत करें; फ़िल्टर विवरण: Non Devanagari Article Name (विस्तॄत विवरण | परीक्षण)

And yes, it's that bug.
