Sintaxe de Mensagem ICU

Crowdin Enterprise supports ICU Message syntax, which is used to help express the subtleties of language-specific spelling, grammar, and formatting in translations.

Strings formatted in the ICU Message syntax can have different types of replacements called arguments.
Each argument is enclosed in curly brackets and refers to a value in the input data. Arguments of the following types are supported in Crowdin Enterprise: number, date, time, select, and plural.

ICU Message Syntax in the Editor

ICU syntax arguments are always highlighted in the Editor, so you know which part of the string shouldn’t be translated. Altere a posição dos argumentos na tradução para seguir a ordem natural das palavras no idioma de destino. Altere a posição dos argumentos na tradução para seguir a ordem natural das palavras no idioma de destino. Há também um modo de visualização, que permite ver como a tradução será exibida na interface do usuário para garantir que todos os elementos traduzíveis sejam traduzidos.

Plural type is used to handle plural category variations, as each language has its own set of plural categories (for example, English has “one” and “other”, while Ukrainian has “one”, “few”, “many”, and “other”).

As seguintes marcações curtas são usadas para determinar as categorias plurais:

  • zero
  • um (singular)
  • dois (duplo)
  • poucos (paucais)
  • muitos (também usado para frações se tiverem uma classe separada)
  • outro (obrigatório—forma plural geral—também usado se o idioma tiver apenas uma forma)

In the Editor, you don’t have to manually add or delete plural categories to the translations you are making. Just click Copy Source, and the source string will be copied to the translation field with the number of plural categories right for the current target language.

Select Ordinal

The purpose of the select ordinal type is to choose output based on the ordinal pluralization rules (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.) of the current target language. It is very similar to the plural type, except the value is mapped to an ordinal plural category.

Select Ordinal type


Select type is mostly used to represent the right gender-based inflections in the message.

Select type


The purpose of the number type is to display different number values such as percentage, currency, and decimal numbers independently from the locale conventions for those. This enables adjustment of the message output to the number formats used in different locales. ICU Number Skeletons are also supported.

Data, Hora

Date and time types show date and time values according to the formats preferred in the specified locales. These types can also have a style – extra information on how the value will be formatted. The following four styles can be used: short, medium, long, and full.
