1. Go to the Languages section in the admin panel and search the answers you created in English, in the search results, you'll see the answer you created to the left and it's key to the right, copy the key, only this part: questions_question_field_dd3c09975afe77b6bcfffa417b643c5b_value_1 without the word 'base'
2. then you need to change your url from this one: www.yoursite.com/admin/languages to www.yoursite.com/admin/dev-tools/languages in order to be able to search by the key
3. enter the copied key in the search form and choose German in the dropdown menu and tick checkbox "in keys"
4. in the search results you'll see the key to the left and the empty value, enter your translation now and hit Save

I'm sorry but the implementation of the search for the language is atrocious. Because it does not work directly for the keywords or original values to search. Here make adjustments or to care for missing values is virtually impossible or takes weeks.

It would be very helpful when optimizing on this problem.

If you want to translate the profile question's values you should follow these steps:

- Go to Admin Area > Settings > Profile Questions section;
- Find the question you need to translate the values for and click Edit;
- Double click the value you need to translate, edit it and click Save.

That's it.

when you translate it in the same step as you create it, it works... But when have create it and like change your translation later,  you got an Error, thats our Problem!

Nanuky, what is software version you have, as we cannot reproduce this issue on the latest version of the software. 

Did you noticed when the issue started to occur? Did you make any changes in the software core or added some 3rd party javascript code or 3rd party plugin?

Check this post for searching language by key.

Note: when you go to admin / settings / languages; you will have to edit the url in the browser address bar as below. Add dev-tools to the url.
