During the installation I just realized that there were quite a few messages
appear in English after Amanpreet Singh Aalam showed it to me. The messages were
coming from a package called cracklib.

Cracklib is a next generation version of libCrack password checking library. [1]

Anaconda depends on cracklib for password checking while entering root password
during installation. The messages that comes during installation while entering
new passwords for root user do come from cracklib package. So, the translation
of cracklib package is quite helpful to make your anaconda look completely

Translations of cracklib can now be submitted through transifex upstream [2].
It's a very small amount of translation work - 15 messages only. Thanks to Jan
Dittberner from for working with upstream transifex to get it
