I found a solution, it's not a good one but ...

i went on my custom.js in themes/my_theme/js/

then i added 

$('#identity .field5 .form-control-label, #authentication .field5 .form-control-label').html('my_new_text');

yes, yes i changed my text with .html in jQuery be careful too select the good classes to avoid mistakes 


the hard part was to have a different class for my different field so i went to themes/my_theme/templates/customer/_partials/customer-form.tpl 

and created a variable that increase at every line. 

<form action="{$action}" id="customer-form" class="js-customer-form" method="post">
    {block "form_fields"}
    {assign var="number" value="0"}
      {foreach from=$formFields item="field"}
      {assign var=number value=$number+1}
        {block "form_field"}
          <div class="field{$number}">
             {form_field field=$field}

  <footer class="form-footer clearfix">
    <input type="hidden" name="submitCreate" value="1">
    {block "form_buttons"}
      <button class="btn btn-primary form-control-submit pull-xs-right send_to_adresse" data-link-action="save-customer" type="submit">
        {l s='Save' d='Shop.Theme.Actions'}


with that i have differents variables for every lines and it's easier to target with css/js 



Good luck with that

same problem...

I need to rename one of the label but there is not in TRANSLATION tool, any lang file or in databeses.


any solution? 

Go to translations or edit directly the table ps_translation.
Edit or add a row (one for each language) where:
 - id_lang id of the langauge
 - key: Address
 - translation: "whatever you want the label to be in the desired language"
 - domain: ShopFormsLabels
 - theme: your theme

Here 1 is EN and 7 is NL for me, yours might differ

same problem here... 

Any proper solution for it???

Depends on how you define "proper" :D

Here's an example module that can rename the registration field labels and make them translatable at the same time.



 * Module Name: formlabelmangler
 * Description: Example code to show how to modify field labels
 * Version: 8.0.0
 * @author: Paul Campbell [https://www.prestashop.com/forums/profile/11264-paul-c/] 
 * @license   https://opensource.org/licenses/AFL-3.0 Academic Free License 3.0 (AFL-3.0)

if (!defined('_PS_VERSION_')) {

class formlabelmangler extends Module
    /** @var array */
    private $hooks;

     * @param string|null $name (Deprecated parameter)
     * @param Context|null $context
     * @return void
    public function __construct()
        $this->name = 'formlabelmangler';
        $this->tab = 'front_office_features';
        $this->author = 'PaulC';
        $this->version = '8.0.0';


        $this->displayName = $this->trans('Fun with forms and hooks.', [], 'Modules:formlabelmangler.Admin');
        $this->description = $this->trans('Modify field names on customer registration form.', [], 'Modules.formlabelmangler.Admin');
        $this->ps_versions_compliancy = array('min' => '1.7.0', 'max' => _PS_VERSION_);

        // Hooks to install to
        $this->hooks =  [

     * Install and hook module.
     * @return bool True on success, False if an error is encountered
    public function install()
            parent::install() &&

     * Respond whether the module uses the new translation system.
     * @return bool
    public function isUsingNewTranslationSystem(): bool
        return true;

     * Inject additional customer registration fields and/or manipulate existing
     * Hook::exec('additionalCustomerFormFields', ['fields' => &$format], null, true)
     * @see https://github.com/PrestaShop/PrestaShop/blob/develop/classes/form/FormField.php
     * @param array FormField &$arguments['fields'] any additional data
     * @return array The field definitions to be rendered
    public function hookAdditionalCustomerFormFields(array $arguments) : array
        // The current fields which are set can be retrieved with the following
        // since the data is passed by reference.
        $fields = $arguments['fields'];

        // Uncomment the following if you want to record the current field details in the
        // PHP error log for reference.
        //error_log('We got ourselves some fields to play in: '. print_r($fields, true));

        // In this example we want to spruce up the 'email' field and call it "Email Address"
        // instead of just plain old "Email".
        foreach ($fields as $field) {
            if ($field->getName() == 'email') {
                        'Email Address', [], 'Shop.Forms.Labels'

        // This is where you would return any additional fields you want to create
        return [];

This has been tested with 8.1.4 but should be fine for 1.7.0+ php7+
