 Thanks for bringing that up @tobifjellner - Swedish isn't alone in that
 regard - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percent_sign#Spacing

 There's 6 translations that will need to be updated, I'm pondering if it'd
 be worth simply translating the percent group to ease the chance of
 So instead of having `.... %2$s%% ....` in many strings, with a comment
 about how the % needs to be doubled up, we'd have a single translation
 `_x( '%s%%', 'Percent formatting; The percent sign for % should be doubled
 for escaping.', 'wporg' );` which can be inserted into the other strings.
