So people are translating Magento 2.

How can I use the current translation from there in my project?

I can download a source.csv - but won't I need one file per module?

Maybe using this command from your project root:

bin/magento i18n:pack --mode=replace -d path/to/your/file/source.csv . de_DE

After that, use this command:

bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy de_DE

All the translations will be applied.

  • Might be an issue with the PHP7 i am using (community.magento.com/t5/Technical-Issues/…)

  • I was able to use the workaround at github.com/magento/magento2/issues/3303 - but it looks like the source.csv (for de_DE) is already rubbish.

You can download the language pack from the magento marketplace (free).

Then you just have to follow the installation instructions from the README.md


  • Alle Dateien nach /app/i18n/splendid/de_DE/ kopieren

Aus dem Magento-Root-Verzeichnis folgende Befehle aufrufen:

rm pub/static/frontend/Magento/luma/de_DE/js-translation.json
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy de_DE
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
rm -rf var/di
php bin/magento setup:di:compile

Hello Good afternoon my friend

Did the procedures that you said just upgrading to the language pt_BR

But see in the image that the error is displayed

"Requested languages: pt_BR File "/i18n/pt_BR.csv" does not exist> "

You have some information to correct this occurrence, because I intend to use this translation pack



The strange thing is that when updating the page we see that was applied due translation


  • Mmm... I'm learning too. I guess that this is happening because we're trying to use an independent file and not a language module. I'm using my own module github.com/barbanet/magento2-language-es_ar I think that you'll need to create the language module and then apply the downloaded file.
