PLURAL for pt-br

Hello!

I would like to request that we have for pt-br the same that was done in mwr:58790, because we also use the plural form when a parameter is equals to zero: "You has 0 messages" instead of "You has 0 message".

By the way, is it possible to have 3 possible texts as in {{PLURAL:text if 0|text if 1|text if >1}}?

More than two numeric forms are possible. CLDR says that the current config is correct. Please explain what and why precisely.

Siebrand19:20, 16 November 2009

I think that CLDR is not correct, because in pt-br it is used:

  • Você tem 0 mensagens (actually, we would prefer to say "Você não tem mensagens")
  • Você tem 1 mensagem
  • Você tem 2 mensagens (the same for N > 2)

CLDR is a reviewed resource with a formal process. Linux distributions use it as a reliable source. For now, I am not inclined to want to change it in MediaWiki and deviate from CLDR. Please appeal with CLDR. If you *are* correct, that should be clear soon.

It doesn't actually say anything about pt-br, just for pt, whatever it means.

Then you please process this request. I said what I thought about it. It's easy enough, and I indicated that I will not take responsibility for doing what was asked.

Request made at ticket 2746.

Helder, I apologise for not following up directly with you on this, but the plural rule for pt-BR is already correct in CLDR. The question came up while they were processing the pt change. I confirmed to them that pt-BR was the same. The change went in on CLDR 1.8 and must be live now. This can be confirmed at CLDR Language Plural Rules#pt (pt at CLDR is the fallback, and comes from pt-BR).

So this update can be made also for pt-br?

Helder15:10, 29 May 2010

If this comes out right it already has been done:

  • 0 (0 words)
  • 1 (1 word)
  • 2 (2 words)

Plural for pt and pt-br is the same. That's what it should be, right?
