To validate the po file run “msgfmt -o /dev/null -c pk.po”.

Here are information about the plurals:

	“Only one form:
	Some languages only require one single form. There is no
	distinction between the singular and plural form. An appropriate
	header entry would look like this:
	          Plural-Forms: nplurals=1; plural=0;
	Two forms, singular used for one only:
	This is the form used in most existing programs since it is what
	English is using. A header entry would look like this:
	          Plural-Forms: nplurals=2; plural=n != 1;
	Two forms, singular used for zero and one:
	Exceptional case in the language family. The header entry would
	          Plural-Forms: nplurals=2; plural=n>1;

The plural forms have to be translated in the msgstr[1] strings of the
po file.  If your editor doesn't let you translate plural forms, you
will have to use another editor for that purpose (mousepad, nano, …).
