Language Overrides

joomla support cheshire manchester merseyside north west ukChanging the text created by the Joomla! CMS, as opposed to the text created by you when you edit a website Article, requires what is called a LANGUAGE OVERRIDE.

One example of text created by the Joomla! CMS is the text displayed on a Login Button.

The text states LOG IN.

We prefer SIGN IN.

The text displayed can be changed but requires a LANGUAGE OVERRIDE.

In this article we show you how to:

  • create a Language Override, and
  • edit an existing one

via the Language Overrides screen of your website's Dashboard.

Create a new Language Override

Follow the steps below.

Change a Language Override

WYNCHCO website designs include a number of Language Overrides.

For example: instead of presenting a LOG IN button when displaying a Login Module, we prefer to display a SIGN IN button.

If you would rather display LOG IN then you can simply delete the Language Override.

If you would like to change the form of words used, then you can edit the Language Override.
