The correct translation is
Tous les cinq jours.
Tous for masculine plural or
Toutes for feminine plural.
Five days :
jour (day in French) is a masculine word, then the equivalent will be
Tous and not
So till now, we get
cinq jours. This is incomplete because the word
jours should be preceeded by an
les (masculine plural).
Tous les cinq jours
One more thing :
journée (feminine word) is used to highlight that part of the day or this day in its duration, when you want to emphasise the length of time.
jour (masculine word) is used to highlight this time of the day or the day as a precise moment, a time unit in which an action took place.
