Subject: RE: [xliff] Plural forms and XLIFF

Hi Yves,
The example you gave is not good for considering plural forms. It is actually an example of text with inline tags containing subflows that should be sent to their own units/segments. In this particular case, the separated entries might need some attributes with context information.
Plural forms in PO files have separate targets for each count value. This means that we have to deal with one source with many targets. This is a situation not contemplated yet in the schema draft or the elements defined so far.

Hi all,

During today's Inline Codes SC call the topic of how to represent plural form came up.

For example how we would extract the following java string:

"There {0,choice,0#are no files|1#is one file|1"

Since this is not only involving the inline code, we decided to bring that topic to the TC level.

We have some existing work done on this in the PO representation guide (http://docs.oasis-open.org/xliff/v1.2/xliff-profile-po/xliff-profile-po-1.2-cd02.html#s.detailed_mapping.tu)

And we have also an item in the wiki:

This is not an urgent topic, but it would help the SC if we had some ideas on how this could affect inline codes.

Thanks for any input,
