language pack update does not change strings in the GUI that have changed

I have installed the german language pack from and found some issues in modules/Administration/language/de_DE.lang.php
To test the changes I simply unzip the language pack and changed some strings in de_DE.lang.php (‘LBL_MANAGE_PASSWORD_TITLE’, ‘LBL_CONFIG_TABS’ and ‘LBL_CONFIG_TABS_DESC’ which were wrong)
Then I ziped the whole thing again,
uninstalled the original language pack from my suitecrm installation, installed my changed language pack , I got no error messages so far, and
logged off an logged on again (as admin)

BUT the old strings are still there.

Then I checked the modules/Administration/language/de_DE.lang.php on the server but this looks good and is the updated file including my changes.
BUT for the 3 changed strings it still show up the old ones in the GUI (logged in as Admin). What I don’t understand.

Therefore I am wondering whether there is some hidden caching on the server side, or in the database , that I don’t not yet understand.
(no, browser cache is not involved since I used a different new browser , that never “saw” the old GUI – Stings ever)

Any ideas, what can be done to activate the changes ?

On your issue, do a quick repair on your language files

thank you verry much
I checked
but the fixes are already there (but not yet in , as i wrote)

The “quick repair” funktion in the Admin - Menu worked. (the thing is, that my language file was obviousely cached in “cache/modules/Administration/language/de_DE.lang.php” . if “quick repair” is called, they gets deleted, and later are rebuild including the changes i made)

just installed 7.3/
which has all the fixes for the wrong strings i found in the older language pack.
