But it looks/sounds awkward in both swedish and danish! Just to make sure: I didn't mean to put an English string into the translation file, but the translated one (in your case Danish or Swedish) with a slightly different grammatical build. In Dutch the grammatical build of the string is almost the same as in English, so it not looking that ugly...
And this is only a workaround, not a solution...
BTW: how 'ugly' is this workaround in Finnish, the native language of Rainy, the developer of Rainlendar? Aren't Danish, Swedish and Finnish related to each other?

IMHO it should be 2 different strings - maybe in the next update? I agree with you, there are more languages were my workaround looks grammatically 'ugly'.
Rainy, what's your opinion on this?

Finnish belongs to a different language family than the rest of the nordic languages so they aren't very similar.

Anyway, I can add the postfix string that is used in the birthdays to the language file so it can be translated with the normal or with the ordinal numbers.

I can't see that addition, or am I missing something (as usual)?

My bad. I added the possibility to change the postfix but didn't make the string translatable. I'll fix that in the next version.
