This is a translation related issue. The English ambiguity
itself must be solved before being able to translate this sentence into
your language. This message comes from Koha inventory tool. You have to
see how it works in English.
In Koha inventory tool, you send a list of barcodes. Each item is then
handled by Koha. If an item is check out, Koha do a checkin. If the
check-in succeed, this message is displayed:
item was on loan. It was returned before marked as seen
If the check-in fails, for whetever reason, Koha displays this:
item was on loan. couldn't be returned.
I don't see any reason why the check-in should fail, but it happens and
Koha report it!
