You will probably want to change a translation so that it fits your case. For example, we use the word VAT in our english translation file but you might prefer “Sales tax” instead. You could edit directly the translation file like explained above but when you update HikaShop and its language files in the future, you will loose your modifications. Instead, you can copy/paste the lines you want to change to the override textarea below the translation file textarea and do your modifications there. This “override” file won’t be changed by HikaShop when you update and that way, you will be able to keep your modifications while still getting the new translations.

For example, if you want to change the word VAT to use “Sales tax” instead you would:

Step 1: Log into your Joomla Dashboard

Step 2: In the top menu, hover over Components and click HikaShop to access the HikaShop Dashboard, then click Configuration in your back end and open the tab languages.

Modify Translations

Step 3: Click on the “change” icon of your language file which opens a popup where you can see your translation file and an override textarea below it.

Step 4: Search for the lines with the word VAT in the translation file and copy/paste them to the override textarea below.

Modify Translations

Step 5: Change the text in the override file to suits your needs. And save the modifications.
