Instructions for translators of format-message and other ICU Message Format based projects.

The ICU Message Format is a great format for user-visible strings, and includes simple placeholders, number and date placeholders, and selecting among submessages for gender and plural arguments. The format is used in apis in C++, PHP, Java, and multiple JavaScript libraries.

This repository is for a github page explaining the format for translators so that they can understand what parts get translated in a complex message.

Any feedback or contributions are welcome.
