PoEdit error: msgfmt: found 1 fatal error while translating wordpress official POT file into your locale.

Error code: “Poedit: msgfmt: found 1 fatal error”

Solution:While setting up the wordpress official POT file in Poedit you need to explicitly specify following lines in the Plural Forms filed in the settings window.
nplurals=2; plural=n != 1;


Once you have added the line you will see the string which was causing problem in following way. There will be a separate filed for translating the plural forms.
