Is there any way to change the language on the AnyConnect client?

The client prompts for



Second Password

I want to change what these say to



RSA Passcode

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can find how to change responses from the switches but not the prompts.

thanks for the reply.. unfortunately there's nothing in the guide about changing the prompt text. I also wouldnt be comfortable in creating our own client.

I wish it had the RSA prompt as well. We have a Juniper device that's worse. It states Password for domain auth and Passcode for RSA. Lot's of helpdesk calls after initial deployment.

Hi Collin,

I use Juniper as well. You can change those prompts by implementing a custom sign in page.

I know this is old, but we are looking for the exact same solution.  Is it possible to change the password prompts?

You can modify the prompts by editing the en-us file.

  • Go to: Configurations\Remote Access VPN\Network (client) Access\Anyconnect Customization/Localization\GUI Text and Messages

Click edit to edit the file.  Search for the existing text prompt you want to edit. 

Here’s my example.

I wanted to edit “Passcode”.  Running a search of passcode brought me here. 

                #: 722e3d35ad39848fd16c341898f273cf

                msgid "Passcode:"

                msgstr ""

Edit the msgstr field to what you want displayed, like so.

                #: 722e3d35ad39848fd16c341898f273cf

                msgid "Passcode:"

                msgstr "RSA Pin"

Save the file and test.

I also changed Second Password.

                #: c81279053dfc5079c9afc2ccc070761b

                msgid "Second Password:"

                msgstr "Network Password"


I previously displayed



                Second Password

Now it displays


                RSA Pin

                Network Password

I recently spoke to TAC and an engineer told me you can’t change the order to have Network Password above RSA Pin.  He said you can only customize the order on the clientless vpn.

Here’s a link he gave me for what can be changed.
