Can a word be changed based on the gender of a variable?

Hi again everybody! :slight_smile:
I’m trying to translate the string “The glass shards slash your 1%s!” to danish, but I have encountered a small technical problem that i require some assistance to solve. The thing is that if 1%s is neuter the translated sentence should be “Din 1%s flænges af glasskårene!”, but if 1%s is common gender the sentence should be “Dit 1%s flænges af glasskårene!”.
Is it possible to change a word based on the gender of a varible, and if so how? If such a system doesn’t exist, how difficult would it be to implement it?

I mean you could try to add gender/quantity context which more accurately reflect different languages and dialects representations, but I imagine by then you’re adding a universal translator to Cataclysm.

For a productive suggestion, look at how gender is implemented and in print statements. That should be stored in a multi-valued variable and might be useful as a template for how to extend it.

You cant put two translated strings for one source string.
So you need to be creative here.

Unfortunately gettext only does split translations like this on numbers by default.
Adding support to split phrases based on gender of terms is likely possible, but I think its stretching what gettext is capable of, and I’m not sure how much work it would be.

It seems to be far beyond my abilities to implement a gender system. I guess I just have to be creative.
