Plural forms

Swahili has 2 plural forms:

Form 0 for 1.

Form 1 for 0, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6...

When translating into this language, you need to be able to express plural forms effectively. The plural form expression tells the translation system when to use each plural form. For example, some languages express the idea of "zero objects" differently to "one object" or "more than ten objects". In these cases, the plural form expression captures the information needed to know which form to use based on the number in question.
