Language Files

From version 2.0 of the plus templates we've placed all the text that the store generates in one easy to edit file. This means that you have the option of changing the default words and phrases that appear on the store or in the emails that are received through the orders or affiliates. Most users won't want to make any changes at all but it's there if you need it. It also means that translating the store into another language is much simpler. We do have some other language versions available for download on our free downloads page.

What you need to do is open the file vsadmin/inc/languagefile.asp or vsadmin/inc/languagefile.php ,depending on your version, in your favorite text editor like Notepad. Don't make any changes to the first or last line and be sure that any changes you make are the ones in the text between "inverted commas".

For example if you wanted to change the word "Details" that appears next to each product to "More information" you would locate this line xxPrDets="Details" and change it to xxPrDets="More information", then save the file and upload it to your server.

You may want to make a copy of this file before making any changes just in case anything gets messed up. That's about all there is to it - make sure you check the changes on your store as you make them.
