[ka] Verify plural rule (switch to rule #1)
I've been chatting with our localizer about the plural rule for Georgian (ka). Currently is set to rule #0 (1 form), but CLDR disagrees (2 forms) http://www.unicode.org/cldr/charts/latest/supplemental/language_plural_rules.html#ka The point is a noun doesn't change when it follows a numeral, but the second part of the sentence in the example changes: 1: კალათში 1 X-ია. შეიძენთ მას? other: კალათში 2 X-ია. შეიძენთ მას? From Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgian_grammar#Pluralization > The plural number is marked with the suffix -eb, which appears > after the root of the noun and before the case suffix. > [...] > It is important to state that, however, the plural suffix is not used when > the noun is preceded by a quantifier of some kind, such as a cardinal number. Quoting from email: > The example in English: > 1: (There) is 1 X in a basket. Do you want to buy it? > 2: (There) are 2 X in a basket. Do you want to buy them? > > But in Georgian, you have to say: > 2: (There) is 2 X in a basket. Do you want to buy them? > > So, in Georgian, when you use a cardinal number, these sentences are identical: > 1: (There) is 1 X in a basket. > 2: (There) is 2 X in a basket. > > "Do you want to..." is another sentence, where is no a cardinal number, > so they are different. So, a string as "By closing Firefox you're canceling X downloads. Do you want to keep them?" could not be properly localized. We also have some strings were there is no numeral.
@A.C. Should be change the rule to #1 and fix the strings at this point?
Summary: [ka] Verify plural rules → [ka] Verify plural rule
>Should be change the rule to #1 and fix the strings at this point? Yes, change it to #1.
I've pushed the change https://hg.mozilla.org/l10n-central/ka/rev/8c1cbfd67d4d506b3ddbdd7b302866622472671c Let's use this bug to track strings that need to be fixed https://pontoon.mozilla.org/ka/firefox/all-resources/?status=translated&search=localization_and_plurals&string=159945 https://pontoon.mozilla.org/ka/firefox-for-android/all-resources/?status=translated&search=localization_and_plurals&string=159945
Summary: [ka] Verify plural rule → [ka] Verify plural rule (switch to rule #1)
Reverted back all changes.
Thanks, I don't see any more errors. @pike Can you update compare-locales when you are around? I filed bug 1423679 to figure out how to deal with this kind of changes for GetText projects in Pontoon.
