Language

Edit strings

Text in Moodle may be changed by editing the language strings.

To ensure that any changes are not overwritten by a new version when upgrading, you need to create your own local language pack as follows:

  • Copy the contents of your language folder (e.g. lang/en) into a new folder (e.g. lang/en_local) - you will need access to the server to achieve this step, it cannot be done from within Moodle.
  • Make your local language pack the default for the site via Administration >> Configuration >> Variables
