In Magento 1 I just added a translate.csv for my admin area.
How can I achieve this in Magento 2? I just want to change the translations of a few things and add some missing translations. Can't I put a de_De.csv for the adminhtml area somewhere?

How to handle translations for the admin panel (backend).


With your custom module, you can create an i18n folder and place your translation file inside. The path should look like this:

which in your case is de_De.csv


In Magento 2, translations file is saved in /vendor/magento/<module-modulename>/i18n folder.

For example, if you want to modify translation for word related to checkout module, it could be saved in /vendor/magento/module-checkout/i18n/<locale-folder> folder.

You can copy locale's csv file from /vendor/magento/module-checkout/i18n folder to app/code/Magento/module-checkout/i18n directory.
