Sintassi messaggi 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

Gli argomenti della sintassi ICU sono sempre evidenziati nell’Editor, così che tu sappia quale parte della stringa non dovrebbe esser tradotta. Cambia la posizione degli argomenti nella traduzione per seguire l’ordine naturale delle parole nella lingua di destinazione. C’è anche una modalità anteprima, che ti consente di vedere come sarà mostrata la traduzione nell’UI per assicurarti che tutti gli elementi traducibili siano tradotti.

Sintassi Messaggio ICU nell'Editor


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”).

I seguenti short tag sono usati per determinare le categorie plurale:

  • zero
  • uno (singolare)
  • due (duale)
  • pochi (po’)
  • molti (anche usato per frazioni se hanno una classe separata)
  • altro (richiesto - forma plurale generale - anche usato se la lingua ha solo una forma singola)

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.

Seleziona ordinale

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.
