Yep! Always worth referring to:


Since Qt 4.2. And in order not to translate the entire GUI from "Engineering English" to "English" there's even a -pluralonly switch for 'lupdate' which only extracts the %n plural forms - nice!


P.S. The Qt Quarterly articles seem to be asleep since about 2011 - I'd love to read a nice "wrap up" about the current and future state of Qt OpenGL enablers, for instance (mainly desktop for me) :)
