Makes sense.

I don't know about "easier to translate", since there are twice as many
strings now. But certainly what the user sees will be more grammatically
correct. :)

Note that some languages may still have dual (that is 2 extensions is
different from both 1 and 3 and more extensions), and so on for 3 and 4,
and in some languages 21 (and 31 but not necessarily 11) extensions may
be singular again.

Kind of reminds me of
