As discussed in #17379
can_import_settings was supposed to check if settings are available before execution of a command according to documentation (https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/howto/custom-management-commands/#BaseCommand.can_import_settings). It was doing that only by coincidence… it was doing that by forcing en_us locale via translation module which relies on settings.
This ticket will act as a dependancy of #17379.
