I am learning about translation. I have done below steps to translate one field in product detail page but it did not work. I am not sure about I am going right way

step1: copy the i18n folder from Magento_Catalog then paste into my custom theme <magento-root>/app/design/frontend/Chennaibox/Theme/

step2: Rename CSV file into fr_FR.csv. In that CSV I have changed second column QTY field into number of materials

step3: change language in admin side to french(france) (Store->Configuration->General->loacle option->local)

step4: clear cache,static files then refresh front-end but still QTY only displayed.

What did I wrong here?

note: locale(fr_FR)is also generated in pub/static.But I don't know why its not get reflect.

You may try and execute the following command:

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy fr_FR

This will update the contents and make them ready.
