How it's possible to change the Backorder cart message???

I'd need to display something like "The product will be available to ship from the 1st of january"

Thx

  • Globally change the message or change it per product or based on some rules? – Fabian Schmengler Sep 11 '15 at 8:43
  • for me globally change it's enough, because I have only one product to apply backorder... – bicccio Sep 11 '15 at 8:51
  • ... for the future and for others, also the per product change might be very useful... – bicccio Sep 11 '15 at 8:55

The string is translated in the Mage_CatalogInventory module as "This product is not available in the requested quantity. %s of the items will be backordered."

You can change it using theme translation or inline translation as described here: Magento - Rename Tax to GST

For the theme translation approach, you need the following line in translate.csv:

"Mage_CatalogInventory::This product is not available in the requested quantity. %s of the items will be backordered.","The product will be available to ship from the 1st of january"

@fschmengler your answer was very helpful, however for my magento install I needed a slightly different code in the end for the translation file:

"""%s"" is not available in the requested quantity. %s of the items will be backordered.","new message here"

Perhaps this is due to my theme or different magento versions (I'm on CE 1.9.0.1)
