Translation with text including numbers

Have a quick question regarding translation.
Is it so, that if I have a dropdown component containing a list of i.e Valve 1- 20.
I need to add 20 translations in the trans.manager for this to work?

Yes you do. The translation manager doesn’t know anything about the semantics of what you’re doing, and takes phrases literally. So you’ll either need 20 entries or a single entry that you use to dynamically create the values for your drop down via scripting.
