{pl} tag

I´d like to submit this problem for a discussion in order to achieve an agreement in using the {pl} tag with nouns in plural in each language of the EN-SK language pair when contributing. Should be {pl} placed with just one or can be placed with both languages? The GL-7 says:

"For nouns in languages without grammatical gender, such as English, Hungarian or Turkish, use {pl} and {sg} in the respective field to denote plural or singular if unusual or different from the grammatical number in the other language.
If both languages in the pair have no grammatical gender, use the tags when the grammatical number is not the same on both sides."

In the DE-EN plural tag is used with one language only: etc.

It comes out for me that according to this rule, the DE-SK part should or could have {pl} tag on both sides, for exapmple:

How should it look in EN-SK? I was totally perplexed by the interpretation of this rule, anyway I would prefer using the {pl} tag on both sides of the contribution form, too. It sounds logical and makes sense to me. So, what do you think? Any idea is highly welcome.

SK has gender tags, EN has none. So it's like in German-English.

I´m sorry but I still don´t understand whether a translation of substantives both in plural form can be posted with {pl} tag on both sides. And can it posted in both Slovak language pairs (EN-SK and DE-SK) in the same way? For example:
SK Olympijské hry {pl} = DE Olympische Spiele {pl}
SK Olympijské hry {pl} = EN Olympic Games {pl}

I would highly appreciate an answer. Thank you.
