I'm using Porto theme by Smartwave on Magento 2.2.5 CE. The store is based in the UK. A lot of the terms on Magento 2 are US, so I am just wondering where can I change the particular term TAX to VAT throughout the entire store?

Looking in this directory:


I have found en_US.csv, however no en_GB.csv...even when looking in the static content directory: /pub/static/frontend/Smartwave/porto/en_GB/i18n

It shows only en_US.csv

By default Magento provides the support to the en_US only if you have created your store in other language then you yourself have to maintain it into the other language

Just simply traverse to the below location

Admin > Store > Settings > Configuration > General > General

From Store View: Select your store view & in Locale Option select that language in which you want your store view Locale Option > Locale

And now traverse to below location


Put your language_CODE.csv file there. For en_GB you can get it from here

Set your desired changes there into that file & run the below commands

php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy en_GB en_US -f

Note: Make sure you have entered the language_CODE when you are deploying the content then only it will create the other language's static content otherwise it will deploys only the en_US content.

  • Thank you for the quick reply and guidance! However upon looking at the .csv file it doesn't contain any replacement for TAX. Would I just add TAX as a value and in the next column add VAT? Commented Aug 21, 2018 at 14:58
  • Yes as I already said that set your desired changes into that file you can simply put it like this "original_value","desired_value" make sure that the value (original_value) you are putting there in the csv file is translate able & also should have exact same value means capital letters at place of capital & small letter at the place of small Commented Aug 21, 2018 at 17:57
