UploadWizard: Unsuitable default texts in the extension

completed by: Theo Patt

mentors: Quim Gil

UploadWizard is an extension that allows a user to upload multiple files with a step-by-step JavaScript wizard. See also: Upload Wizard description page on Wikimedia Commons.

Currently it has this little problem:

There are some texts which make using the extension in non Wikimedia context

"Thanks for using our new upload tool! Help with translations" - it's not
necessarily new nor do the users need to concern themselves with translations.
Suggesting that this is moved to local customization.

"Select a media file to donate" - user's are not necessarily donating anything.
Suggesting to have neutral wording "Select a file to upload" by default, having
the other wording again as local customization or configuration option.
