HOWTO write a language override

Joomla's language ovrride feature enables you to translate/change a text without editing the language files.

Here is a short guide specific to K2Store.

Let us assume that you want to change the Firstname (in billing address fields) to My Name.

  1. Go to Joomla admin->Extensions Manager->Language Manager->Overrides.
  2. Click new to create a override
  3. Under the Search text you want to change, enter the following text (as you see in the site): Firstname and hit search.
  4. You will get the constant: K2STORE_FIRST_NAME
  5. Enter this constant in Language Constant * box
  6. Enter your value (in our example My Name) in the Text box.
  7. Save.

You can create as many overrides as you like in this method.
