    A company that prides itself on taking care of safety cannot close such a gap for 2 years. That’s one thing, worse is that it ignores the voices of its customers. I assure you, former customers. We didn’t renew 10 licenses for this plug-in today and we’re using iThemes Security from today. Embarrassing lack of professionalism. We advise against it!

    Please, fix it!

    Thank you @karlemilnikka for the fix. Works like a charm.
    I added the code with the “code snippet” plugin. Recommend it.

    “I’m afraid to say there is no possible way to do that at the moment, we are taking steps to make Wordfence translation ready but this isn’t in a complete stage yet, this issue has the internal reference number (FB761)” – 2 years, 4 months ago

    A company that claims to protect others cannot cope with such a problem for 3 years. Pathetic! Invest your money in another plugin!

    @adamfrost, I have to agree,

    Unfortunately, and even though I like WordFence and I think as a security plugin it is great, I simply cannot continue using it, this is a user facing product and it looks just unprofessional the way it works for users of other languages.

    I’m waiting for my 1-year subscription to end to look up for alternatives.

    It’s sad, I wish they would do something about it.

    C’mon Wordfence team; that’s barely acceptable.
    You deal with the highest threats, shouldn’t be an issue to provide us a fast trick to prevent this, either with a hook or an extra param.
    More widely, WF should be localized in full now; raise it on top of your roadmap please !

    As of now, I had to deactivate the option “Don’t let WordPress reveal valid users in login errors”.

    BTW, kudos to @leandrorocha for pointing this out, was searching for the “why” for a while, without linking it to WF : you literally saved my “life” today as we go production and my client was barking at me …

    I don’t understand why nobody replies to these posts and the topic has been ignored for 3 years !!!

    After all, you deal with security and this situation, because users are rummaging in the system and trying to fix something themselves, weakens security – you lead to a situation of reduced security!!!

    My guess is that they bought the software from someone else and now cannot change it. They charge for it but ZERO support.

    Same problem, I need to translate it in italian.
    I would like to have an official solution from WordFence…

    Wow… this is almost unbelievable! 😮

    Did someone from Wordfence simply “blocked” this thread or something like that?

    This is absolutely unprofessional guys. What a big shame really.

    I can’t understand why you can’t just fix this, it’s a 30 secondes job,

    please, would you fix it? I can’t translate this error

    I confirm that the best workaround for this is to create a snippet with this code:

        function login_error_message($error){
            //check if that's the error you are looking for
            $pos = strpos($error, 'incorrect');
            if (is_int($pos)) {
                //its the right error so you can overwrite it
                $error = "ERRORE: Username o password non corretti. <br><a href=''>Password dimenticata?</a>";
            return $error;

    You can create a snippet with Code Snippets or add the code to the function file of your child theme.


    Thanks @ruperth2o It’s indeed the best solution.

    A plugin that protect site from hacking cant make option to translate:

    ERROR: The username or password you entered is incorrect

    For 2 years…
