I would like to use translations from my own extension. I've created helper and translation file in different locales. But Magento shown me translation from Mage_ locale There is my code:


under global in config.xml


in template Mage::helper('myextension_base')->__('Cart')

I've created files in en_US and de_DE

Where I do something wrong?

UPD Looks like Mage_ translations has priority or my translation placed after Mage_ translations

  • make your module depend on the checkout module. this way it will be loaded after the core one and (most probably) it will override the core translations.
