Why change translations?

Modifying translations lets you tailor your store to your target clientele. A hip-hop clothing store won't use the same vocabulary as a luxury car resale boutique.

Modifying your translations allows you to adapt your store's wording to the relationship you want to create with your customers: formal, casual, humorous - the choice is yours!


How do I edit translations?

The page for editing translations looks like this:


  1. Select the type of translation you wish to modify. You can choose between back-office translations, front-office translations, translations of installed modules, e-mail translations and other translations (various tax-related translations, catalog translations, etc.).
  2. Select the language whose translations you wish to modify.
  3. Click on the "Modify" button.

A new screen appears, where you can search for texts to be translated.



There are two ways to carry out your search:

  • by typing a word or phrase in the "Search for translations" search bar at the top left of the page
  • by exploring the categories on the left-hand side of the page

Edit the translation you wish to change, then click on "Save" to save. To return to the translation provided by PrestaShop, click on "Reset". Your new translation is online!
