Text in Moodle may be changed by editing the language strings, either via Administration >> Configuration >> Language or directly e.g. in ''datafolder/lang/en''.
==Local language pack==
{{Moodle 1.6}}
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 ''langconfig.php'' of your language folder (e.g. ''datafolder/lang/en'') into a new folder (e.g. ''datafolder/lang/en_local''). You will need access to the server to achieve this step - it cannot be done from within Moodle.
* Add a string for parentlanguage to this file, which points to the language which is the most similar to yours.
* Make your local language pack the default for the site via Administration >> Configuration >> [[admin/config|Variables]].
* Edit only those strings you want to change with the built-in language editor, to be found in Administration >> Configuration >> Language.
