There is an error in the translation you provided

Asked by Niko Krause on 2017-07-18

There is the following String "%'d second", which should be translated into Kazakh "%'d секунд"
https://translations.launchpad.net/linuxmint/latest/+pots/nemo/kk/+translate?search=second&batch=10&show=all

Suggesting this leads to an error "There is an error in the translation you provided"

Maybe the error is in the plural form:

Current Kazakh[1]: %'d секунд

the html source code looks strange:
<code>%&am</code>p;#x27;d секунд
instead of the expected
<code>%&#x</code>27;d секунд

Plural form and singular form in Kazakh need to be the same: "%&#x27;d секунд"
I add it to both and press save, then I get the error. So I can't propose the right translation, because of this error.

I get the message: "There is an error in a translation you provided. Please correct it before continuing."

Ok. I fixed it. Had to suggest "%'d секунд" instead of "%&#x27;d секунд"
