As far as I see currently there is no special case in translation for users and question counts with k suffix:


Do not pay attention about 440 in the picture above, we don't have any tags with more than 1k followers, but these times are coming (look for [javascript] tag).

For now only "views" and "votes" have special form with k suffix:

We need same behavior for "followers" and "questions" from tag tooltip. Please add these variants for localization into Transifex.

  • I don't have the code in front of me, but I'm pretty sure this should just be a matter of tweaking the way this string is formatted in our code since the ability to vary translations based on the actual number rather than the shortened version already exists.

This was fixed in rev 2018.1.11.28366. The new string are on transifex:

The old strings are still used for non-abbreviated counts. The new strings are used only for abbreviated value. Note that they have a REFERS TO:CountAbbreviated info on them:

  • Could you please force transfering current version of the Transfex DB into build? I have just made a translations, and we are waiting for transifex.push and site.rebuild. Commented Jan 12, 2018 at 10:09
