I'm setting up a multi-language e-commerce store and I want to customize magento2 localization. What is the most efficient way to do it?

For example, if I have a es_ES store and I want to change "string a" in "string b", how can I do it?

Thanks in advance to all!

Create file es_ES in


Add text to the file "string a","string b"

Check your changes.

  • Does it work only when localising theme or with all strings (even module's ones)? "string a" has to be English? Sorry for the late answer and thanks for your help!
