Thanks for all of your quick responses.

Gettext seems a bit more complex than what I want. It would be better to
have a simple function to implement the plural and singular conversion like
the one in Ruby on Rails.

Like
   Inflection.plural "some_word"
   Inflection.singular "some_word"

Inflection module defines the conversion roles.
http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~damian/papers/HTML/Plurals.html

May be I should have a try with perl4caml + Lingua-En-Inflect,  but Lingua
only does conversion from singular to plural,  how to do the opposite
conversion (plural to singular)

Thanks.

Conglun
