 I'm familiar with this, ResText is my friend :) And I've added
"Plural-Forms:.." clause in the .po file 2 years ago (just in case... ;)

So I had to workaround almost all of them with varied degree of success.
Anyway, it's a translator's duty :)
But I can't use two different translations in place of one source
string. Surely, I can live with it.
I still have uncertainty about singular form of units used in "Number of
..." sentence.

Should I make a patch for this?
