#19158 closed Bug (invalid)

FileField's error message about too long filename should use plural translation function

FileField's error message is currently defined as _('Filename is %(extra)d characters too long.'). It contains a number, but _ in that context is ugettext_lazy, so translators cannot provide different translations for different pluralization forms.

Agreed. ungettext_lazy should be used instead.

Related to #19034. Unfortunately, ungettext_lazy is seldom useful, as generally you don't know the third (count) parameter at the lazy definition time. The patch I proposed for #19034 has one annoying drawback, it overwrites any customized message. Has someone a better idea?
