Translations - multiple plural forms

Postby psciborek » Sat Dec 07, 2013 2:35 am

Hi Guys,

I can't find any information about multiple plural forms in Waze client translations so I'm starting new thread.

In English you have two forms. For example:

  • 1 report
  • 2+ reports

It's easy. Unfortunately there are some languages which use more forms in quite complicated ways. Here is the same example in Polish:

  • 1 raport
  • 2-4 raporty
  • 5-21 raportów
  • 22-24 raporty
  • 25-31 raportów
  • 32-34 raporty
  • ...

Unfortunately AFAIK currently it's not possible to make such translation in Waze. Could it be fixed? It looks really ugly and it doesn't make good first impression if you have such error just after starting the app.

More details about the issue can be found for example in GNU gettext documentation.

I definitely second that - AGAIN.
We need to have this grammar thing solved.
