I have a clean installation of CiviCRM on Wordpress on a Bitnami AWS installation. Later I was able to change the language to Spanish MX of all CiviCRM but it has not changed the language of the CiviVolunteer component.

I installed the l10n and SQL Translation files but this doesn't work for CiviVolunteer. How can I change the language of this component to Spanish MX?

Looking at the source code (e.g. the settings part), CiviVolunteer is not translated, nor easily translatable (the text is hard coded).

In order to make it translatable, some programmer needs to add the translation strings.

  • or could you just fork CiviVolunteer and manually overwrite the text 'if' this is just to 'convert' it to one other language

There might not be a translation for it, but check out l10nupdate which helps you download translations for extensions.

By the way the core translations you linked to in your question are very old. The newer ones are at https://civicrm.org/download - in the dropdown is a choice for the localization files.
