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.


I tried your solution on Magento 2.2.9 but seems not working I need to add fr_FR.csv translation for some extensions who are under /vendor/amasty/extension_name so I had created directory structure under /app/code/Amasty/Extension_name/i18n and uploaded fr_FR.csv file inside ... but translation doesn't work !

N.B : if i upload fr_FR.csv file under the /vendor/...../i18n it works but in this case each time I update the extension, it erease the translation file.

Does someone find a solution for module translation ? Thanks a lot
