It would be good to know the distribution...

I guess that some translations from SDDM or apt are missing.

You can try something like this

for i in `find /usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES -name '*.mo'`
        sed "s/[&_]//g"<$i|if grep -q YOUR_WORD "$i"; then echo $i; fi

to find the strings in German translation.

Hope this helps.
