Reuben Green just found out that for en_GB (and possible others) "Open
in %d New _Tabs" and "Open in %d New _Windows" does not show the
number of selected folders since thunar 1.8.15.
Here the Issue: https://gitlab.xfce.org/xfce/thunar/-/merge_requests/28
I guess that is, because I now use:
ngettext ("Open in New _Tab", "Open in %d New _Tabs",
over the old
ngettext ("Open in %d New _Tab", "Open in %d New _Tabs",
If I remeber correctly I did so because I had some trouble to prevent
getting a number in the singular form. Though for Reuben the old
ngettext seems to be perfectly fine.
It looks like e.g. "de.po", which I usually use, already adepted to the
The new form looks more clear to me, though I dont know much about
advantages/disadvantages on the translator side. That's why thought it
would be a good idea to bring up that issue on this mailing list. Which
ngettext would you prefer ?
Thanks & Cheers,
