There is multiple way to edit validation text.

  1. It is a setting in the configuration, here's the official documentation: https://docs.magento.com/user-guide/customers/password-options.html

  2. You can edit from the file: vendor/magento/magento2-base/lib/web/mage/validation.js

  3. You can translate via i18n.

  4. Can create custom js validation:

    1. In input or select tag add our validation with this code:

      data-validate="{required:true, 'validate-custom-pass':true}"

    2. Add js validation for Validate-custom-pass

<script type="text/javascript">
    'jquery', // jquery Library
    'jquery/ui', // Jquery UI Library
    'jquery/validate', // Jquery Validation Library
    'mage/translate' // Magento text translate (Validation message translte as per language)
    ], function($){ 
    'validate-custom-pass', function (value) { 
    return (value.length >7); // Validation logic here modified length spelling
    }, $.mage.__('Password length should be minimum 8'));

The solution which actually worked in my case is
I edited the code in this file
Near line number 687

    'validate-customer-password': [      //line number 677
               function (v, elm) {
    .(gap of 10 lines)
    .//line number 687 i commented the old and added the new line
    //validator.passwordErrorMessage = $.mage.__('Minimum length of this field must be equal or greater than %1 symbols. Leading and trailing spaces will be ignored.').replace('%1', passwordMinLength); //eslint-disable-line max-len <br>
    validator.passwordErrorMessage = $.mage.__('Minimum length of this field must be equal or greater than %1 symbols.').replace('%1', passwordMinLength); //eslint-disable-line max-len

Please feel free to ask me and know any more details
