Edit strings

Text in Moodle 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 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, wich points to the language wich is the most similar to yours.
  • Make your local language pack the default for the site via Administration >> Configuration >> Variables
  • Edit only those strings you want to change with the build-in language editor, to be found in Administration >> Configuration >> Language
