Description

When an import is performed with a suggestion that contains a blank at the beginning or at the end of the line, it will be imported. That will lead to fuzzed records after a while.
So this could be improved by doing the following, check the record when importing against the original
Then the following options could be created:

  1. Reject the imported record as it is invalid
  2. Mark the imported record as fuzzy, so the person that does the import knows it is wrong

I'd say, perhaps raise a "warning". There may be situations where the translation needs to contain a space that was not present in the original. For instance if the plugin hard-codes a colon after the string, then in French an extra space will be needed at the end.

In that case the best option would be to mark it as fuzzy, because then the import is not halted by the warning
