TOPIC: On the %s day of the month
#1515
On the %s day of the month 7 Years, 11 Months ago  
There's a problem translating this string:

#: Application/DialogComponent.cpp:920
#, c-format
msgid "On the %s day of the month"
msgstr "Den %s dag i måneden"

In english, you say 1st, 2nd, 3rd (but rainlendar2 says 3th), 4th and so on - and that addition is hardcoded. But in danish, you should use a dot (.) instead - 1., 2. and 3. - so it looks rather stupid in danish. And in swedish, too, where it should look like 1:a, 2:a, 3:e and so on...

I can second that for the Dutch translation.
Most of the daynumbers are written in Dutch with a 'e' after it, with some exceptions.
So: 1e, 2e, 3e, etc.
But: 8ste, 20ste - 31ste.
But I can live with only the 'e' in the language file.
Maybe it is possible to put all the daynumbers 1-31 in the translation files?

The change in 2.1 affected the birthdaycount, too.

That's because the same string is used for these items.
I've 'solved' this 'problem' in the Dutch translation by rebuilding the sentence. In English:
"On day %s of the month" instead of "On the %s day of the month". And removed the suffix "th" (in Dutch "e").
Now the age of birthdays is (80) instead of (80th) and the description for repeating items is still readable.

But it looks/sounds awkward in both swedish and danish! IMHO it should be 2 different strings - maybe in the next update? <br><br>Post edited by: Arne Anka, at: 2007/04/16 15:25
