I installed this language module : https://github.com/Imaginaerum/magento2-language-fr-fr

Now, due to the Magento translation loading order :

  1. Loading the module translations
  2. Load theme translation file
  3. Load translation package info
  4. Load db tranlation. (Inline translation)

the app/design/frontend/COMPANY/PROJECT/i18n/fr_FR.csv file is not working (not prioritary).

I tried creating a new translation package, but it's not working neither...

  • Make sure your current theme is COMPANY/PROJECT and locale is configured by fr_FR. Feb 27, 2017 at 13:32
  • locale en_US is working in same theme without another en_US language module installed Feb 28, 2017 at 13:51

1 Answer 1


Currently, language pack translations have priority over theme translations.

This is going to be fixed in Magento 2.2, see https://github.com/magento/magento2/pull/7142
