Can't you make it with the same method as translations for categories, products, payment methods etc?

Is a nightmare translating with those language files specially when after each upgrade the language files are overwriten.

Where? Confirmation email? Orderlist? ...

Confirmation emails for both shopper and shop admin.
Administrator>virtuemart>Orders & Shoppers>Orders

You need the language keys in your language overrides for administrator

extensions -> language manager -> overrides

choose administrator from dropdown

put there your overrides with key and translation


Hi guys,  in 2.021D  the order status inside the confirmation emails is not being translated and the files have those keys included as is the newest language pack avi.

The text im refering to shows this way in spanish just below the total at the order emails:

"El estado de su pedido es: Confirmed."


Also the order status is not translated in the backend administrator of VM2.

Do we still need to make overrides as jjk mentioned previously or it should read it directly from the new language files?



Might be fixed already. I did see some changes related to the order status in 2.0.20d (not yet released  ;) ).
Non-English Shops: Are your language files up to date?


Oh sorry, yes im actually testing version D, Max send it to me to test few things.

He told me to change in the order edit status at the backed of VM: Confirmed to COM_VIRTUEMART_ORDER_STATUS_CONFIRMED etc that seems to work for the backend, have not tested yet in the emails.


Not working with VM2.22a in the order confirmation emails.

Not the lang codes in the lang files and neither with the overrides.


Still not working, im on v2.0.22a. Ive made the fix for myself. But you should fix for future releases.
Im working on this view: orders/details_items.php

Why not fix on 22d then? What did you do?
