FS#2223 - Some strings need splitting or replacement

There is a conflict in meaning in some words. In English past tense (”he closed the task”) and past participle (”List of closed tasks”) is the same word. But in Greek they are two different words (past tense of close: έκλεισε, past participle of close: κλεισμένος/κλεισμένη/κλεισμένο/.../etc → (actually, past participle has 3 genders (male/female/neutral) x 2 grammatical numbers (singular/plural) x 4 grammatical cases (nominative/genitive/accusative/vocative)) = 24 combinations but we’ll deal with this later if needed).

So, strings that now are used both as past tense and past participle, or used both for singular and plural, must split and use a different string when past tense and a different string when past participle or singular/plural.

These strings are:

varvaluenotes
openedOpened It is used in Event log as past tense (meaning: “User X opened Y task” or “Y task was opened by X” → so in Greek must either use past tense or past participle as singular because it’s one task) and it is also used in Overview as past participle (meaning: “List of opened tasks” → so in Greek must use plural). On the other hand, the same message in task’s History uses var taskopened=”Task opened”. Maybe it would be best if var taskopened was used in Event log too instead of var opened. It would solve my problem.
closedClosed (same as above)
editedEdited (same as above)
This task is a sub task of FS#2222 - Greek translation issues

Correction: In Event log uses var open (not opened) which is used in Overview, in section View tasks too.

Var opened is used in Overview, in section Feeds.

The rest vars, closed and edited are used both in Event log and in Overview in both sections View tasks and Feeds.

A general suggestion: Don't re-use strings. Assign new strings in different areas even though they appear identical in meaning. Re-use strings only when their function is exactly the same.
