Summary0001127: Please use plural forms

It looks like Kdenlive doesn't use plural forms in UI. E.g. from ru.po:

#: src/clipproperties.cpp:499 src/slideshowclip.cpp:130
#, kde-format
msgid "%1 images found"
msgstr "??????? %1 ???????????"

A translator could bypass this limitation by changing words like "Images found: %1", but it's not how humans talk really :)

So please use proper plural forms (ngettext).

Right, in KDE, we need to change the strings from:

i18n("%1 files were deleted", numFilesDeleted);


i18np("1 file was deleted", "%1 files were deleted", numFilesDeleted);

i18np uses the first string when the arg equals one and the second one otherwise.

I will start updating the stings right now.

Ahem, "1 file was deleted" won't work for Russian :) We use same form for everything ending with 1 :) So it's same for 1, 21, 151 etc :)
