Does magento has plural support for translations?
If no, I think it should be added to the todo list of Magento2 team.
At least, Zend framework having plural support since 1.6

Thank you for your submission! I created an improvement and added it to the product backlog. Due to other priorities, it is unlikely that we will be able to include declension of words in the initial Magento 2.0 release, but we will consider it for a follow-on release.

This proposal makes sense but is currently not our priority. It was added to backlog and will be handled with other i18n/l10n issues.
I know in magento 2.x added declension of nouns based on numeral argument value:
%1 [%1|cat|cats] -> 1 cat / 2 cats
But i don't know how it works.
