NGETTEXT(1)                           GNU                          NGETTEXT(1)



NAME
       ngettext - translate message and choose plural form

SYNOPSIS
       ngettext [OPTION] [TEXTDOMAIN] MSGID MSGID-PLURAL COUNT

DESCRIPTION
       The ngettext program translates a natural language message into the user's language, by looking up the transla-
       tion in a message catalog, and chooses the appropriate plural form, which depends on the number COUNT  and  the
       language of the message catalog where the translation was found.

       Display native language translation of a textual message whose grammatical form depends on a number.

       -d, --domain=TEXTDOMAIN
              retrieve translated message from TEXTDOMAIN

       -e     enable expansion of some escape sequences

       -E     (ignored for compatibility)

       -h, --help
              display this help and exit

       -V, --version
              display version information and exit

       [TEXTDOMAIN]
              retrieve translated message from TEXTDOMAIN

       MSGID MSGID-PLURAL
              translate MSGID (singular) / MSGID-PLURAL (plural)

       COUNT  choose singular/plural form based on this value

       If  the  TEXTDOMAIN  parameter is not given, the domain is determined from the environment variable TEXTDOMAIN.
       If the message catalog is not found in the regular directory, another location can be specified with the  envi-
       ronment variable TEXTDOMAINDIR.  Standard search directory: /usr/share/locale
