== Plurals ==
 
Plurals are handled differently in various languages. Whilst English or German have a singular and a plural form, other languages like Turkish don't distinguish between plural or singular and there are languages which use different plurals for different numbers, <abbr title="exempli gratia - Latin phrase meaning 'for example'">e.g.</abbr>, Polish.
 
Gramps provides a [[Translating_Gramps#Plural_forms|plural forms]] support, useful for locales with multiples plurals according to a number (''often slavic based languages'') or for Asian family languages (''singular = plural'').
 
Note, some locales need singular form with [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plural#Zero zero] and plural form might be also used in this case.
In some strings, it's necessary to specify different translations depending upon the number of an argument. For example,
This allows languages with gender differences to map nicely into your sentence.

We need to call module :
from gen.ggettext import ngettext
 
and code like this :
 
ngettext("singular %d", "plural %d", n) %n
 
Sample:
 
msg = ngettext('Import Complete: %d second',
'Import Complete: %d seconds', t ) % t
== Provide a context support ==
