    Localization for multiple plurality languages.

    John Ament Master

      Hi all,


      I'm wondering if anyone can give me some advice on the following situation.


      Let's say I want to localize my app, and I have several messages that are numeric based, such as



      0.comments = No comments.
      1.comments = 1 comment.
      n.comments = # comments.
      



      This obviously works fine in english, but what happens when I move to, let's say, russian?  Or some other language that has the concept of multiple plurality?  I've done this before in voice apps, and the bottom line was that we realized we couldn't just throw all of this into a config file and load it up, we needed some kind of logic that knew how to speak the language in order to create the correct strings.  Has anyone done something like this using Seam?


      Thanks,


      John
