"From internal to internal" and other strings as well

Bug Description

Binary package hint: checkbox

I'm translating the program into Polish and it's often either hard to or impossible to understand a string.
In this case the command doesn't make any sense:

"Firewire HDD verification procedure: 1.- Plug a Firewire HDD into the computer 2.- A window should be opened asking which action should be performed (open folder, photo manager, etc). 3.- Copy some files from the internal/firewire HDD to the firewire/internal HDD"

"Copy some files >>>from the >>>internal<<</firewire HDD<<< >>>to the firewire/>>>internal<<< HDD<<<"
Is my English so weak or the person's who wrote the commands? There are plenty of such cases one of which I reported a few days ago where the grammar was incorrect. Just read it all one more time. So that I could know whether to copy files from internal to external or external to internal.

Attached branch includes fixes that clear up the firewire test instructions by changing the following:

3. becomes "Copy some files from your internal HDD to the firewire HDD."
adds 4. "Copy some files from the firewire HDD to your internal HDD."
