    In the English phrase...

    Code:
    {username} set their location as {newLocation}.
    'their' works for both genders. In some languages though, this has to be either male or female, so we have to translate it as:

    Code:
    {username} stelde zijn/haar locatie in als {newLocation}.
    (Translated: "set his/her location as").

    It would be nice if there was a specific phrase for both males and females:

    Code:
    {username} set his location as {newLocation}.
    
    {username} set her location as {newLocation}.

    What do you do for those who have not set a gender then?

    Well it would need to fall back on the general phrases then. Make it smart enough to pick the appropriate phrase...
