If you want to translate their module language from English to German then follow the path app/code/Webkul/ProductAttachment/i18n in their unzipped Magento2 Preorder folder and then you will get a csv file with name “en_US.csv”. Now, rename that csv as to your region code and language code “de_DE.csv” and translate all right side content after a comma in your language. After editing the CSV, save it and then upload it to the path app/code/Webkul/ProductAttachment/i18n where you have installed Magento 2 on their server.

The user can edit the CSV like the image below.
