Custom translations file in Magento

Feb 25, 2011

It is very helpful to create a single translation file for your magento template to include any words or phrases that you add to the basic templates. Simply create an empty module (create a folder under app/code/local/[yourcompany]/[yourmodule]) and then add a subfolder etc and create a config.xml which should contain the following. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <config> <modules> <translations> <version>1.0.0</version> </translations> </modules> <frontend> <translate> <modules> <translations> <files> <default>swn_translations.csv</default> </files> </translations> </modules> </translate> </frontend> <adminhtml> <translate> <modules> <translations> <files> <default>swn_translations.csv</default> </files> </translations> </modules> </translate> </adminhtml> </config> Make sure your module is enabled (see [Creating your own module][1]).
