Yes, right.

(from msgfmt --help:)

Usage: C:\MINGW\BIN\MSGFMT.EXE [OPTION] filename.po ...
Generate binary message catalog from textual translation description.

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options 
  -a, --alignment=NUMBER      align strings to NUMBER bytes (default: 
  -c, --check                 perform language dependent checks on 
  -D, --directory=DIRECTORY   add DIRECTORY to list for input files 
  -f, --use-fuzzy             use fuzzy entries in output
  -h, --help                  display this help and exit
      --no-hash               binary file will not include the hash 
  -o, --output-file=FILE      specify output file name as FILE
      --statistics            print statistics about translations
      --strict                enable strict Uniforum mode
  -v, --verbose               list input file anomalies
  -V, --version               output version information and exit

Giving the -v option more than once increases the verbosity level.

If input file is -, standard input is read.  If output file is -,
output is written to standard output.

Results you got are the one expected.

ja first
then 2 (german) or 3 (italian) or 4 (japanese)
and indeed 1 to go back to original language of gnubg

but Japanese does not show the Japanese characters.
