This question already has an answer here:

My translations work as long as I copy/paste an existing Mage_*.csv file into my locale/{lang}/ folder. From there, I can delete what I don't want to override, add new text to work with my modules, etc.

I want to add my own file, like translations.csv and have it just pull from there. How do I make Magento 1.9 aware of this file? I'd like to have module-specific csv files to keep things separated, like PackageName_ModuleName.csv, and all my translations for that particular module live in that file.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


In my case, I was missing this:

        </PackageName_ModuleName >

It needed to be added to my config.xml file for my module under the <frontend> tag.
