Changing the terms (e.g. institution, group, student)
29 April 2015, 22:06
I'm currently developing a Mahara site for an organisation and they want to change the key names of things to something else (e.g. what Mahara calls an "institution", they want to call a "section". Does anyone know how I can do this?

The best thing to do would be to create your own local language pack so that any terms that you change aren't overwritten when you update your site.
There is more information about the local folder at https://wiki.mahara.org/index.php/Developer_Area/Local_customizations and local strings in particular at https://wiki.mahara.org/index.php/Developer_Area/Language_strings#Custom_lang_strings_in_.2Flocal
Roger from Solent University gave a workshop recently at Mahara Hui in which he walked participants through the creation of a local lang folder. You might find his explanations useful as well: http://mahara.solent.ac.uk/view/view.php?id=94011
