Hi All,

I am using gettext and .po files for my translation, however, I found it
very difficult to apply plural form translation, is there anything goes

in controller:

<%=h _("You received %{no_friend} friend invitation") %{:no_friend =>
pending_friends_for_user.length } %><br/>

in en/myapp.po

msgid ""
msgstr ""
"MIME-Version: 1.0\n"
"Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8\n"
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit\n"
"Plural-Forms: nplurals=2; plural=n == 1 ? 0 : 1;\n"
"X-Poedit-Country: UNITED STATES\n"

#: app/views/friends/_pending_friends_for_user.rhtml:-
msgid "You received %{no_friend} friend invitation"
msgid_plural "You received %{no_friend} friend invitations"
msgstr[0] "You received %{no_friend} friend invitation"
msgstr[1] "You received %{no_friend} friend invitations"

Is there anything goes wrong?

Any help is appreicated, I hope not making obvious mistake here.

Thanks again!
