    Hello Natation,

    Could you tell me why you think it should be ladders? Personally, I would always use ladder in the singular, unless I was talking about more than one ladder, and I can't say I've ever heard anyone do differently. However, if it is common where you come from to always use the plural, please let me know and I'll see whether this is something I think we should include among our translations.
