PO file import errors should be more verbose

Bug Description

A more detailed report is not easy to do, so I'm going to change this report as a Wish and will try to improve it in the future.

The best way to check a .po file is using gettext tools, if you upload an external .po file into Rosetta, usually, means that you know how they work.

The best way to detect problems is using msgfmt -c -v FILE.po

If it does not shows any error or warning, please, report it here with a link to the .po file so we can debug it.

Cheers.

Now, the "po" files uploaded without errors are updated, but the error message "Please, review the po file seems to have a problem" doesn't provide too much help to repair the mistakes in the files.

We give now more feedback on the errors, but are not related to format errors as we parse them later after the submit.

Anytime soon we will send emails confirming the correct import or pointing you to the errors we found in that import.
