Changing/Customising text

I'm looking to alter the text that displays at the checkout.


For example I'd like "Grand Total Incl. Tax" to change to "Total"


I've tried editing the files in /app/locale/en_US/ such as Mage_Tax.csv but it hasn't seemed to do anything.


I changed the second column to the text that I wanted, and left the first column as the original "Grand Total Incl. Tax".


What am I missing?


Re: Changing/Customising text

A much easier alternative to that would be to enable Translate Inline via the Admin Module.

  1. After logging into the Admin select System > Configuration
  2. Select the Default Store View under Current Configuration Scope.
  3. Under the Developer tab enable Translate Inline for Front-end.
  4. Save the Configuration and you are done!!

Now, refresh the frontend and you should be seeing red dotted boxes around those terms. Mouse over them and click the book icon – this will open up the edit form in a lightbox. Make the necessary changes and save it and your job is done. As simple as that !!!

Re: Changing/Customising text

Hi CaptainG,


There is another way:

You add prefix module name before your text. For example: 

"Mage_Tax::Grand Total Incl. Tax", "Total"

=> Mage_Tax:: (text)


Hope this works for you.
