Abbrevations for the state dropdown in Magento 2

Hi,

I am using Magento 2.1.4 and i need to display the region code instead of fullname in the State/Province dropdown in the cart.
For Example:
California --> should be CA
Alaska
-> AK

Please suggest any solution...

Best and the easiest way is to use the Magento Translate feature and update the CSV with the desired Abbreviations.

Re: Abbrevations for the state dropdown in Magento 2

Hi ShoaibRehman89,

We do not need to change the each and every state for the required countries manually by csv translation....

We have tried changing the following file

From

$option['label'] = $item->getName();

To

$option['label'] = $item->getCode();

 
in

public function toOptionArray()


path:/vendor/magento/module-directory/Model/ResourceModel/Region/Collection.php


And is working fine, but the thing is we need to override the same from our theme...as it is core file modification.

Please suggest...
