No need to consider translations here.this is exactly the problem I pointed out. that there is no need to translate,is a bug, not a feature.
No, there is a deep misunderstanding here.The passwd chat parameter in smb.conf allows for giving a parsing pattern of shell commands that are non-scriptable (like PAM password chats). This basically works like using the command ,,expect'', but with a different syntax AFAICT.
To make this work, Samba __has__ to call the PAM password chat in a language independent way (with LANG=C, this is handled internally by Samba). The Samba admin then has to provide a chat matching pattern. This pattern __also__ has to be in English.
With the ,,passwd chat'' pattern as specified in smb.conf being in English, you can reliably parse the invoked-by-Samba PAM password chat. No matter what default locale the installed system uses.
Note: This has been tested on a German D-E installation, and it works perfectly.
