Magento 2: The command bin/magento i18n:collect-phrases does not work

I am having trouble using the magento i18n:collect-phrases command to collect phrases for translation.

When I use:

php bin/magento i18n:collect-phrases -o
“/app/i18n/test/xx_YY/dictionary.csv” -m

I get the error message:

[RuntimeException] Not enough arguments

When I try to specify a location where to find phrases:

php bin/magento i18n:collect-phrases -o
“/app/i18n/test/xx_YY/dictionary.csv” /vendor/magento

I get the error message: [InvalidArgumentException] Specified path doesn’t exist

I get the same message (Specified path doesn’t exist) whichever path I chance the last part of the command into (app/design/frontend…. etc).

I took one csv file from one of the module categories, translated that into my language and tried to upload it using

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

This worked and showed translation on the frontend as well. But it doesn’t have all the phrases and if I add phrases to that file manually, it does not show those phrases on the storefront.

The website that uses Magento is an addon domain, so the server category structure is:

/home/Maindomain/addondomain/app, bin etc.

Could this be the reason why I am not able to collect phrases for translation?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
