You have two solutions:

  • contact a local wiki adminsitrator to make a change for you (it will be kept specifically on that wiki by adding another level of protection that will block reimports from Translatewiki.net, where it may be translated differently in a more generic version not specific to Wikimedia).
  • or find the relevant message on this Translatewiki: if you can't edit it here, then propose the translation to this Support, and an admin will submit it for you: please link the message
