fix: clarify language of dry run messages #3699

Current Behavior

Currently, the language on the importer is very broken:

screen shot 2018-09-18 at 3 17 24 pm

Expected Behavior

In the screenshot above, I expect the language to read
1 donor will be created
7 donations will be imported
6 duplicate donors detected

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Import a CSV, and select "dry run"
  2. This is the output.

Possible Solution

Since it's primarily dry run functionality that is making confusing language, switch to modal tense would have on processes that did not run (like imports and creation) and simple past tense for the "detected" ones.

Acceptance Criteria

  • The language is clear for dry run imports

@Benunc Since these messages appear directly above the Start Import button, I have adjusted the strings to future tense so they describe what will happen when the import is started.

@Sidsector9 Please move forward with the string replacements above and ping me for review on this one.
