I don’t know if you can translate it to a separate word without changing the original string in the template. If you want to just change the original string in the template, it is in template/email/order/items.phtml.


First, make a translation file. For example, for a Dutch translation, do this:

  1. Make a folder called 'locale' in your theme folder.
  2. In this folder, create another folder called 'nl_NL', where the first nl is the language, and the second NL the country. In this folder, create a file named 'translate.csv'.
  3. Translate your string like this as an example: "Subtotal","Subtotaal"
  4. If that doesn't work, you can translate more specific. In the url of the checkout, the first slug is /checkout/. So, translate like this: "Mage_Checkout::Subtotal","Subtotaal".

An example of a translation file:

"Print Order","Boeking printen"

Hope this helps!
