>Would this work in other languages? (is there such a java function?) 

for other languages or for irregular plural English words you can just use plural(2,"singular_form","plural_form").


There is no standard java library to pluralize words. It can be done with https://inflector.dev.java.net/
lib but it is for slightly different usages and would be kind of overkill for simple tasks
like this.

>Could you use a #macro(plural ...) instead? 
I don't insist, if you think it is redundant feel free to remove it... Personally in our projects
I know a lot of places where this could be useful. It is kind of similar to alt(checkMe, alternate),
just instead of checking for null it is hecking for !=1.
