I am working on a Magento-2 website which is based on German language.

How to install and use new language package for German language in Magento2.

Which package is best for German language?

Any one have an idea about it. Any help is really appreciated.

I have done by just using below command for it

composer require splendidinternet/mage2-locale-de-de

php bin/magento setup:upgrade

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

Note : commands need to be run from your magento root.

More info : Magento 2 German LocalePack de_DE

It's works for me.

  • You can add your extra translation for German language to app/i18n/splendid/de_DE/de_DE.csv. Sep 19, 2017 at 10:05
  • Have you installed by command line? Sep 19, 2017 at 10:51
  • Have you setup upgrade or deployed static content? And current store language must be German. Also deploy content with pass language like php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy en_Us de_DE. Sep 19, 2017 at 11:00
  • As per my suggestion, You need to uninstall module from vendor and install it by manually. Sep 19, 2017 at 11:09

Package link

To install it:

  1. extract and copy into /app/i18n/splendid/de_DE/
  2. Remove pub/static/*
  3. Run Command using CLI:

    php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy de_DE
    php bin/magento setup:upgrade
  4. Remove var/*

  5. Run php bin/magento setup:di:compile


Here is a link to Magento's community engineering projects and there are also translation repositories:


From there you can check the name of the locale. For example language-es_ES

Then you can run this:

composer require community-engineering/language-es_ES
bin/magento cache:clean

And of course also change the locale in Magento admin settings.

Here is an article from where I found this solution:
