The original code it this.
Code:
switch ($updated){
    case 0:
    $string = $this->lang->line('orders_no_records');
    break;
        
    case 1:
    $string = "$updated record";
    break;
            
    default:
    $string = "$updated records";
    break;
...
...

Now I want to use language class and concatnate it. For example the last one.

Code:
default:
$records = $this->lang->line('orders_records');
$string = "$updated "."$records";
bread;

Is this the correct way to do it?

Kind of, you do not need to put quotations around variables. Try this:
Code:
default:
$records = $this->lang->line('orders_records');
$string = $updated . " " . $records;
bread;
