That’s not quite right, because the conversion of `count` to a string won’t be localized. Some languages use non-ASCII digits, use characters other than “.” for decimal points, etc. Depending on the exact type of `count`, it would need to be something like:

	String.localizedStringWithFormat(NSLocalizedString("​blabla%​d​blabla", comment: "​blabla"), ​count​)​

Hardcoding this specific kind of transformation into the parser seems like a bad idea, since NSLocalizedString isn’t part of the language. Why don’t you just use localizedStringWithFormat instead of string interpolation in your code?
