We still can't translate the Retrieve Password page.

Yes, it is not possible to translate it. They are also not listed under Phrases.

Isn't this a chicken and egg problem like the login page, - what comes first? - how can Geni know your preferred language as long as you are not logged in (which is the main reason for entering the send_password page)?

However, - since you have a language selection line at the bottom selecting one of those item should direct you to a translated page, so I agree that it should be translatable, - but technically it would be difficult to perform an inline translation on that page if you are not logged in.

Browsers always send a list of preferred languages (the so-called "Accept-language" header).

It's often set wrong, so it has limited usefulness, and a login page should always give the option of switching to English. But the infrastructure is there - so WHEN you get the "accept-language" header, it makes sense to respect it.

For instance, when you send someone an invite to the tree in another language, the link sent directs them to the homepage in that language.
