Customizing strings / languages

Hi everyone,

First of all, I have to say how much I am impressed by ERPNext! Currently, I start to set up a customized instance.

For this, I would like to change some strings (words) in the UI. e.g. “projects” should be named “Fälle” (German - :slight_smile:) .

I found an easy way to do it in the language files directly (in this case German). However, they are overwritten with every update.

What is the best way to achieve this? I thought about making a custom language, but failing completely with this.

Any suggestions? Is this the best way? And if so, how to do?

Thank you so much!

Type translation in search bar. You can do custom translations from UI and they don’t disappear with updates.

Great. Thank you!

If I see this right, there is also the possibility to import whole .CSV files for custom translations?

Yes, via Import tool.
