I use an MG 2.3.4 installation and add the splendidinternet/mage2-locale-de-de component to apply German as used language for the frontend. It works. I also use a simple custom skin, based on Luna.

Now I add a de_DE.csv file in the i18n folder of my skin and change some translation with success:

Shipping, Verpackung und Versand,,

The default translation for Excl. Tax is not good, and I try to change the translation in the same way without any success. I add these strings:

(Excl. Tax),(Zzgl. MwSt.)
"Excl. Tax","Zzgl. MwSt."
Excluding Tax,Zzgl. MwSt.

deploy and flush cache. No change:

Translation for tax

I also did a full-text search an all installed file, and I found only the component above. I have no further ideas :-(

Please try this.

rm pub/static/frontend/Magento/luma/de_DE/js-translation.json
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy de_DE -f
  • rm pub/static/* php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy de_DE en_US solves the problem without any further translation change. I suppose the default quick-deploy strategy is not secure enough to find all necessary updates.

Might be a cache problem. Flush your magento cache, open a new private browser and check again.

  • As written, I flush the cache on every try (server-side). I try it additional now with a private session of my local browser without success.

  • Then just look for how it's translated in the DE csv. I'm almost sure that it's translated with a specific Module Name like Sales or Catalog. just copy the whole Line into your i18n Folder, that'll be enough.. Mar 13, 2020 at 11:54
