Language Overrides

Need to create a language override?

Language Overrides

Do you need to change some text being used by a CoalaWeb extension on a multi lingual website? Your first step would be to install a language pack but what if you are looking to edit the name of a custom field? Then you need a language override.

In this guide I will show you how to create a language override for a multi lingual site. It will be using the CoalaWeb Contact extension as an example and more specifically the custom input field option.

Depending on what version of CoalaWeb Contact you are using you will have one or more custom fields. If you have a single language site you could use the inbuilt component options to change it's label and associated messages but for a multi lingual site its a bit more complicated.
