{{Moodle 1.6}}
 
Text in Moodle may be changed by editing the language strings, either via Administration >> [[Configuration]] >> Language or directly i.e. in ''moodledata/lang/''.
 
* Click the button "switch" and a local language folder, ''parentlanguage_local'', will automatically be created in ''moodledata/lang/''. Files of edited strings will then be saved in this folder. This will prevent your local changes to be overwritten by a newer language pack while updating.
 
* When returning to edit further strings, check that files of edited strings will again be saved to the folder ''parentlanguage_local'', switching folder if necessary.

Text in Moodle 1.5 may be changed by editing the language strings, either via Administration >> [[Configuration]] >> Language or directly e.g. in ''lang/en''.
 
 
 
'''Local language pack'''
 
 
 
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]].
