No singular/plural differentiation

  1. The phrase

    votes
    (Date added: 2009-11-18 15:00:19 GMT)

    does not differentiate between singular and plural. However, it is used with a vote counter. So it wrongly displays "1 votes".

    Is it possible to correct?

    Thanks a lot.

    The blog I need help with is polytoniko.wordpress.com.

  2. The site linked to your name has nothing to do with wordpress!
    If you have a wordpress blog, please provide a link starting with http:// so we can see what you are asking about.

  3. @1tess: thanks for pointing it out, but in this particular forum, that rule has to be checked case-by-case, as many .org translators (not necessarily with a .com blog) contribute to the translation effort. @keymangreek is a huge contributor to the Polytonic Greek translation.

    @keymangreek: could you point me to the specific string in GP? Also, are the other plural forms correct (i.e. properly editable)?

    Thanks both.

  4. @vanillalounge: yes, all other forms are OK.
    Sorry for my ignorance, but what is GP?

  5. GP = GlotPress

  6. Are "votes" and "Votes":
    Here in GlotPress
    I think is this that keymangreek says. I don't know the context.

  7. @keymangreek & vanillalounge et al

    Sorry for the mistaken post. Now I know that "Translations" forum is different.

  8. @1tess
    I'm lol with not at you :D because I made a similar mistake awhile ago too.

  9. Aye! Things are obvious after someone points them out…

  10. @vanillalounge:
    The string that has no singular, but is used with a counter is "votes", not "Votes".
    If you make a search in the GP database using "votes" as your argument, you will obtain both "votes" and "Votes".
    The term I mean, is the first. It was added on 2009-11-18.

    An example (unfortunately in polytonic Greek) is in the following post:

    Thanks for your attention

  11. Yep, looks like an error on the ratings code, not the translation. Will investigate.

  12. Ok, it is indeed a problem on the ratings code. It will be fixed soon
