_nx_noop( string $singular, string $plural, string $context, string $domain = null ): array

Registers plural strings with gettext context in POT file, but does not translate them.


Description

Used when you want to keep structures with translatable plural strings and use them later when the number is known.

Example of a generic phrase which is disambiguated via the context parameter:

$messages = array(
     'people'  => _nx_noop( '%s group', '%s groups', 'people', 'text-domain' ),
     'animals' => _nx_noop( '%s group', '%s groups', 'animals', 'text-domain' ),
);
...
$message = $messages[ $type ];
printf( translate_nooped_plural( $message, $count, 'text-domain' ), number_format_i18n( $count ) );
