I have activated magento admin login form captcha. I keep getting the message "Incorrect CAPTCHA" When i enter an incorrect captcha code, I want to show the german language text instead of english, since it is a german shop.

I copied the file




and changed the line

"Incorrect CAPTCHA.","Incorrect CAPTCHA."


"Incorrect CAPTCHA.","Falsches CAPTCHA."

But it still shows Incorrect CAPTCHA., even after clearing the cache (cache is also disabled.)

  • Hello, have you redeployed after making the change? – Cold Fridge Jul 26 '18 at 12:34
  • are you using magento's default captcha? Or you are using any third party module? Did you check if other translations are working perfectly or not? – Sukumar Gorai Jul 26 '18 at 12:41
  • I am using magentos captcha. I did not checked yet if other translations work. – Black Jul 26 '18 at 16:08

    Think Oleksandrs answer is completly right .... to fix it w/o touching core files just add a mini-extension with a config.xml that contains these line. – sv3n Feb 25 '19 at 21:01

My shop is Magento and I found the same problem, that Magento_Captcha module don't have translation. I tried different solution and I finally found that in this file:


Missing information about which file to use for translation. I added this and translation start working:


Note: This solution was used for old Magento 1 store. It will be updated to new Magento 2 soon. If you are planing still to use Magento 1 store, please use comment from sv3n. It is better to create new module for making translation file visible for Magento

    I'd consider it as a bug ... and not fixed in 1.9.4.x – sv3n Feb 25 '19 at 16:49
