Simply question,with sed is possible to do a multiple substitution

sed -e s/uno/due/ -e s/uno/due/

Is possible something similar with VIM internal substitution?

:'<,'>s/445/53/a/444/53/g

and

:'<,'>s/445/53/e/444/53/g

Doesn't work

Try this:

:'<,'>s/445/53/e | s/444/53/e

This works by concatenating Ex commands using the pipe (|) symbol and using the e substitution flag (see: :help :s_flags) to avoid raising an error when the pattern cannot be found.
