    This example demonstrates how to add a new field to the login form. Keep in mind that this won’t be saved automatically. You will still need to set up validation rules and manually handle saving of the additional form fields.

    add_action( 'login_form', 'myplugin_add_login_fields' );
    function myplugin_add_login_fields() {
        //Get and set any values already sent
        $user_extra = ( isset( $_POST['user_extra'] ) ) ? $_POST['user_extra'] : '';
            <label for="user_extra"><?php _e('Extra Field','mydomain') ?><br />
                <input type="text" name="user_extra" id="user_extra" class="input" value="<?php echo esc_attr(stripslashes($user_extra)); ?>" size="25" /></label>

    The following example demonstrates how to translate the login form, page, fields or labels. Choose the codes/blocks for translation accurately, otherwise the above function may change other parts of the login page.

    function my_translatorr2() {
      $your_content = ob_get_contents();
      $your_content = preg_replace( '/\<label for="user_login"\>(.*?)\<br/', 'Usernumia: ', $your_content );
      $your_content = preg_replace( '/\<label for="user_pass"\>(.*?)\<br/', 'Passwiert:', $your_content );
      echo $your_content;
    add_action( 'login_form', 'my_translatorr2' );
