Toolserver Tools - Soxred93: PLURAL template necessary
← Thread:Support/Toolserver Tools - Soxred93: PLURAL template necessary/reply (3)
All messages marked as "Toolserver Tools" are no real MediaWiki extensions but toolserver tools (what a surprise ;-)
Therefore they do not support the standard MediaWiki functions like PLURAL & co.
Thanks. I proceeded on the assumption that all MediaWiki extensions can support PLURAL.

Please request this feature from the toolserver guys directly. As far as I know every toolserver tool is a stand alone PHP program. I fear every programmers has to implement this feature itself. But nothing Translatewiki can do for you. Sorry.
Using PHP is not a requirement, so it can be any programming language; me alone using six different ones at least. As I said, no research, isn't there a library delivering strings to programs, which could take the parameter substitution and formatting stuff in a centralized way?
The interface to translate messages of the Toolserver in Translatewiki is developed by Krinkle. As far as I know he tries to implement such features like plural-support at moment.

The goal of the Toolserver Intuition project is mainly two poins:
- Get translations out there at all, and do it via translatewiki.net
- Remove the need for programmers to reinvent the messaging wheel (fallbacks, variable replacements, plural, etc.)
There have been i18n projects in the past, but to my knowledge, none of them addressed both of these.
There is a PHP class available on the Toolserver through Intuition that takes care of this, all they do is $I18N->msg( key )
