I have this shop: http://tienda.mabaonline.com/en/ And I want to know how I can translate some strings in the spanish page: http://tienda.mabaonline.com/es like "My menu" -> "Mi menu" "Shopping bag"->"Carrito de compra" I'll try writing in a translate.csv file but it doesn't work.

any idea?

  • Which csv file are you editing? You will have to check your locale first in System > Configuration > General > Locale Options and edit that locale file for your specific store. May 29, 2015 at 0:02
  • Sorry but, which file? I don't have any file in Locale Options May 29, 2015 at 7:16

Add a string to file translate.csv in Your theme. This file must be on Your theme. For examle: app/design/frontend/default/default/locale/es_ES/translate.csv app/design/frontend/ves_styleshop/locale/es_ES/transalte.csv

At the end of this file (If you do not have him copy it out app/design/frontend/default/default/locale/en_US) add string "My Menu","translate text"

  • Yes I did it, but it doesn't work, I clean the cache after upload the file but nothing happened May 29, 2015 at 7:22
  • In this case, the error in the Theme. Otherwise, the translations used in this order: /app/locale /app/design/frontend/theme online transaction Try to find the "Menu" in the Theme and see if it looks like <? Php echo $ this -> __ ('Menu'); ?>

  • Sorry, in which file I have to find this? May 29, 2015 at 7:47
  • That is a question. Try to search Template package to the string "menu". In rwd template is: app/design/frontend/rwd/default/template/page/html/header.phtml
