Potential Plurals

Potential Plurals

This lint check looks for potential errors in internationalization where you have translated a message which involves a quantity and it looks like other parts of the string may need grammatical changes.

For example, rather than something like this: <string name="try_again">Try again in %d seconds.</string> you should be using a plural: <plurals name="try_again"> <item quantity="one">Try again in %d second</item> <item quantity="other">Try again in %d seconds</item> </plurals> This will ensure that in other languages the right set of translations are provided for the different quantity classes.

(This check depends on some heuristics, so it may not accurately determine whether a string really should be a quantity. You can use tools:ignore to filter out false positives.
