|0001127||Kdenlive||Translation||public||2009-09-11 20:04||2009-09-24 12:34|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0001127: Please use plural forms|
It looks like Kdenlive doesn't use plural forms in UI. E.g. from ru.po:
#: src/clipproperties.cpp:499 src/slideshowclip.cpp:130
msgid "%1 images found"
msgstr "??????? %1 ???????????"
A translator could bypass this limitation by changing words like "Images found: %1", but it's not how humans talk really :)
So please use proper plural forms (ngettext).
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Right, in KDE, we need to change the strings from:
i18n("%1 files were deleted", numFilesDeleted);
i18np("1 file was deleted", "%1 files were deleted", numFilesDeleted);
i18np uses the first string when the arg equals one and the second one otherwise.
I will start updating the stings right now.
|Ahem, "1 file was deleted" won't work for Russian :) We use same form for everything ending with 1 :) So it's same for 1, 21, 151 etc :)|
