    That is a vBulletin 4.X phrase and will not work in vBulletin 5 at all. You need to go to the activateaccount_gemailbody and delete your translation. Empty the translation box. Save the phrase and use the default phrase. If you want to add something, empty the translation box, save, edit again and copy the default using the button provided. Then you can make changes. Do not delete the variable tokens from the phrase. They look like {X}. Where X is a number.
