English term or phrase:File(s) uploaded successfully
This is a system message in a software application.
I have several long questions about this short phrase.
1. Is it not necessary to add article "the" before "file(s)" ?
2. Which variant sounds better (a)"File(s) uploaded successfully" or "File(s) successfully uploaded" ?
3. Is it ok that there is no was/were in the phrase such as
"File(s) was/were uploaded successfully". And if it is necessary, shall I use "was/were" or "were" alone will suffice?
