Customizing Labels


Introduction To Joomla Labels

NS Recipe's translations meet Joomla coding standards. They are all stored in UTF-8 encoded .ini files.

You could modify the .ini files directly. The main drawback is that next time you update your NS Recipes version, all your modifications will be lost.

Fortunately, an elegant way to modify translation exists.


Frontend labels /languages/your_locale/your_localecom_nsrecipes.ini
Backend labels /administrator/languages/your_locale/your_localecom_nsrecipes.ini

Use the labels override mechanism

Joomla gives you the opportunity to redefine labels. What you need to do is to go to Extensions > Language Manager > Overrides

Joomla override labels page


  1. Click the New button in the Overrides backend page
  2. Search text you want to change.
    Joomla search label to override
  3. Put in the new value and Save
For Joomla 2.5.x You have to use your favorite text editor to find the constant associated with the label.
