When I remove an item in the Minicart, a modal popup pops up. This popup has two buttons: Cancel and OK. I want to change these strings to No and Yes, but I can't find the code where the modal is triggered.

I also don't want to translate Cancel and OK to No and Yes for obvious reasons. Where can I find the source for this?

  • Have you tried with template path hint ? Dec 13, 2017 at 9:11
  • @MurtuzaZabuawala The modal popup is called via a Javascript function, I don't think it will be visible in the template hints Dec 13, 2017 at 9:22
  • Just try once and chek Dec 13, 2017 at 9:23
  • @MurtuzaZabuawala Not visible, as expected Dec 13, 2017 at 9:33

Two buttons Cancel and OK is default values defined in vendor/magento/module-ui/view/base/web/js/modal/confirm.js.

If you want to update these button (not use translate), you have to override vendor/magento/module-checkout/view/frontend/web/js/sidebar.js, where confirm.js is used, by copy it to custom theme app/design/frontend/<Vendor>/<Theme>/Magento_Checkout/web/js/sidebar.js. Then change event binding for removing items like this

 * @param {jQuery.Event} event
events['click ' + this.options.button.remove] =  function (event) {
        content: self.options.confirmMessage,
        actions: {
            /** @inheritdoc */
            confirm: function () {

            /** @inheritdoc */
            always: function (e) {
        buttons: [{
            text: $.mage.__('No'),
            class: 'action-secondary action-dismiss',

             * Click handler.
            click: function (event) {
        }, {
            text: $.mage.__('Yes'),
            class: 'action-primary action-accept',

             * Click handler.
            click: function (event) {
                this.closeModal(event, true);
  • I have added the code you recommended, emptied the static content and emptied the cache, but I can't see any difference. Any idea why it doesn't work? The current sidebar.js file: paste.ofcode.org/6hEDjhka3HsPYcSRxTVZWE Dec 13, 2017 at 10:46
  • I see no problem in your code. Please redeploy static content, clear browser caches and try again
