There's also a different in Arabic Mozilla translation (Although these are not actually PO files).

This is not such a big difference, if you want a script I can help you write one, I don't think this parameter should stop LDXE from moving to a different translation system.

One other thing is, I told Diego (From Indifex) I think they should include some way of letting translators choose the right plural-forms for their translation, not sure it will be implemented soon but we can surely send a ticket about it and promote it together.

Kind regards,
