so when I click on Register on my site, it leads me to a registration page. And some of the things there are in English (I would like them translated). But I don't see this page in Pages in CMS in Magento. Where can I find this page to edit it? Is there a place where the rest of the pages is, like when you try to order something and you go through the shipping and so on? Where can I find these?

  • Thanks :). And that's another thing I wanted to ask... How do I get there and edit this file? Is there like an API for that somewhere in Magento? Or do I go to my webhosting server and edit it manually?

  • Btw... I'm really new to this and I didn't set up the store. I just have to learn how to manage it, so I apologize for my ignorance.

Don't edit template files to translate strings!

Magento has a translation system that works on several levels. As a store manager you can change translations using the "Inline Translation" feature.

Summarizing the documentation:

  1. Add Your IP Address to the Developer Mode Whitelist (System > Configuration > Developer)
  2. Disable Output Caches (System > Cache Management)
  3. Activate the Translate Inline Tool (System > Configuration > Developer)
  4. Update the Text (Click the book icon next to any text in the frontend that you want to change)
  5. Restore Original Settings
