Wrong German speaking

Description

When Navit has calculated the new route then it tells you that you'll have to follow it for 10 km for example. In German it tells: ...für 10 Kilometern folgen... The last "n" in Kilometern is wrong, it must be: ...für 10 Kilometer folgen...

I'm sure I noticed it with navit-svn-5723. Before I was using 5709 but can't remmember exactly, but with 5386 that I used for a long time it was ok.

navit-svn-5723 Android 4.2.2 / CM 10.1.3-i9300

Hi crystalgfan,

I had a look at the translations for "Follow the road for the next %s" : https://translations.launchpad.net/navit/trunk/+pots/navit/de/49/+translate

I also had a look at https://translations.launchpad.net/navit/trunk/+pots/navit/de/+translate?batch=10&show=all&search=kilometer

but i could not find an exact match for the error you are reporting. Can you please provide the exact sentence which is erroneous? Some sentences are built by aggregating several sub-sentences, and we need to make sure that we will not introduce an error elsewhere.

BTW, our translations are using launchpad, so everyone is welcome to contribute and correct errors on the fly. Just double check that it will not impact another sentence ;)

Thanks!

Hi kazer,

Thanks for your reply. I had a look at the link above and I changed the plural of number 29 because it wasn't right, because the simple plural of Kilometer in German is also Kilometer: 10 kilometers == 10 Kilometer

Thanks for the fix :) Maybe it was a problem while we updated our translations: https://forum.navit-project.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=449
It just takes some time till we merge the launchpad edits with our SVN and it gets into the buildchain.
