I am currently developing my first Magento website and the whole functionality behind is overwhelming so I might have overseen the possibility to fulfill the task.

I am looking for a way to change the text of the top menu which can be seen on this page: http://sndev.calapo.at/

enter image description here

On the top right we can see two links "Sign In" and "Create an Account" I would like to rename those into "Login" and "Register" - how can I do that?

1 Answer 1


in the app/locale/en_US/Mage_XmlConnect.csv. check for line "Sign In","Sign In" replace with "Sign In","your desired text"

  • My app directory doesn't contain a locale folder oO
