Add DateHandler section
In short, the need for a plugin comes from the impossibility to translate "first cousin twice removed" in languages such as, e.g., German or Russian. See the [[Relationship Calculator]] page for details on why and how to create such a plugin.
Handling date translation is not entirely done within the <code>.po</code> files. Complete handling of date translation for each language/culture is done inside a dedicated date handler plugin.
The need for a plugin comes from the requirements to handle culture-specific parsing and displaying if dates. For example, the month and day order is different between most european coutries and the US. Also, each language has its own set of acceptable modifier and qualifiers for the date: things like "from X to Y" or "between X and Y" may have different
word order. Same with "around", "calculated", "estimated", plus the calendar names. See the [[Date Handler]] page for details on why and how to create such a plugin.
