The file I am looking at is app/design/adminhtml/default/default/locale/en_US/translate.csv

I would like to change translations in the admin back-end without editing this file (in case there is an update that overwrites it in the future

Is there a method to create a separate translate.csv file that will be checked in priority for back-end changes like there is for the front-end?

  • You can enable the inline translation in backend and translate the content Mar 30 '15 at 17:56

It is common practice to create an admin theme for such modifications:

  1. Create the directory app/design/adminhtml/default/yourname

  2. Activate the theme in any custom config.xml:

  3. For translations, then copy app/design/adminhtml/default/default/locale/en_US/translate.csv to app/design/adminhtml/default/yourname/locale/en_US/translate.csv and make your changes.
