Advanced Multi Pattern Editor for Grammatical Numbers, Gender and Select
Advanced Multi Pattern Editor appers into the selected row if the row contains a multi pattern row such as grammatical numbers, gender or select message string. The editors shows the original forms and next them there are the edit fields for each grammatical numbers, gender and select forms used by the language.
Let's have a grammatical numbers example. We have an English project that has a string row that contains singular form "%d file." and its plural form "%d files.". Because the original text is in English there are two forms: singular is used when count is 1. Otherwise a plural form is used. If we edit Finnish translation the plural editor looks like this:
Finnish uses two grammatical number just like English. This is why the editor shows both singular and plural forms. Polish, however uses three grammatical numbers: singular, paucal and plural. If we edit Polish translations the editor contains three edit fields for each form.
Japanese like other Asian languages do not have plural form. This is why there is only one form.
Let's have a gender example. We have an English project that has a string row that contains a male version of the string "%s drives his car." and its female form "%s drives her car.". Because the original text is in English there are two forms: male and female.
Finnish doesn't uses genders. This is why there is only one form.
