Hello everybody, I am the author of a pull request to fix Django bug #21408 <https://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/21408>, which concerns the German translation of the phrases “X days ago” and “X days from now”. Up until now, these phrases were translated into German with “vor X Tage” and “in X Tage”, while the correct translation would have been “vor X Tagen” and “in X Tagen” (this corresponds to the Dative inflection of the word “Tag”). The problem lies in the fact that Django's implementation does not translate the phrase “X days ago” as one, but rather translates the phrases “… ago” and “X days” separately, and puts the two translations together afterwards. I tried to fix the bug for the German language by introducing a `naturaltime` context to pass to `npgettext_lazy` when translating “X days”, so that it would translate to “X Tagen”. (The same holds for “… from now”.)
When reviewing the changes in my pull request <https://github.com/django/django/pull/9777>, Claude Paroz noted that there might be languages in which a differentiation between “X days ago” and “X days from now” is needed. My (our) question is now: Are there any such languages, and if yes, could you provide an example? Thank you very much in advance :) Cheers Max -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Django internationalization and localization" group.
