I work on the engineering side of internationalization at Foursquare, and we're going to be using gettext files in the near future instead of our less-rich, home-grown solution.

I was looking at the section on plurals, and I noticed that a few of the languages that we care about aren't listed in the plurals manual.

I wanted to give the rules for these languages to help future users who also need to translate in these languages.

Arabic, like Gaeilge, has 3 forms where 1 and 2 are special-cased.

Bahasa Indonesian, like English, has 2 forms, where 1 is special-cased.

Thai, like Japanese and Korean, has only one form.

Let me know if you need any more details!
