I am not able to find the place to translate "Back" Button text in the Iphone template. I tried translation in few .csv files but it didn't work. Looking for help to find it.

First of all, locate the template/s where the string is being printed in your project

Then, be sure it is something like this variations (this allows translations)

<?php echo $this->__('Back'); ?>
<?php echo $this->helper('XXXX')->__('Back'); ?>
<?php echo Mage::helper('XXXX')->__('Back'); ?>

And not just (this don't allow translations)

<?php echo 'Back'; ?>

If your template/s use the __() function (allowing translations), then the .csv in app/locale folder should work. Maybe you are editing the wrong file, or maybe you have some syntax error in the .csv file (some quotes bad placed, or something like that)

  • Yes thanks for replay. My Problem I can't locate the string. I searched in all folders. I used the path hints. But I found nothing.

  • That is the code:<div class="button-wrap"><button class="previous-category">Back</button></div>
