I understand that the original string means "percentage of hosts
detected". If that's it, maybe the translation should be "%% máquinas
detectadas", since to write '%' on screen the percentage character
must be escaped. Anyway, it looks like a bug in the original string.
Alternativeley, remove the #,python-format tag.
