The .po files generated using this command doesn't add a plural forms to the header ("Plural-Forms: nplurals=2; plural=(n != 1);\n"), so translator tools (like poedit or lokalize) doesn't recognize plurals strings.

Yes, currently the tool assumes the person doing the translation is in the best position to add the right plural form expression to the header of a newly created application-level .po message catalog. This is especially true when localizing to a language not already bundled with Django.

For languages already included with Django, both #6505 and #11161 already report this and propose approaches to solving it.

Thus I'm closing this as a duplicate.
