I tried several variations in my DataObject wich calls DOM, to change the $pluralTitle.

Although there is a function:

public function PluralTitle()
return $this->pluralTitle ? $this->pluralTitle : $this->AddTitle()."en";

It always take the AddTitle to generate a plural name.
It is posible to change the AddTitle with:

class MyDataObject extends DataObject {
static $singular_name = 'singular_name';

in my DataObject, but I found no way to alter the plural_name in the same way like eg:

static $plural_name = 'plural_name';

What am i missing?
