I want to translate gnome-applets-2.0 but Rosetta
wants to know how plural form is handled in Filipino.

The plural form in Filipino has this syntax: "mga +
the singular word". In other words, the singular word
is preceded by the word "mga" to denote plurality. For
example: In English, 0 document, 1 document, 2
documents, 3 documents...[n] documents. In Filipino it
is, 0 dokumento, 1 dokumento, 2 mga dokumento, 3 mga
dokumento...[n] mga dokumento.
