Hi stuartosborne,

Go to file: app/locale/en_US/Mage_Checkout.csv and with a small search, you can easily find out 2 lines of these text:
Line 335: "Zip/Postal Code","Zip/Postal Code"
Line 287: "State/Province","State/Province"

And change the text in right-hand side, then flush all magento cache.

Hope this helps.

You’re right, it’s so strange cause I do the same in my local but it works, I mean it change those text label.

Did you make any change to the code of this site? Please also pm admin account, I shall try more.

Hi Sauaros
This works fine for the customer details, but it also needs the same for the shipping information and for the estimate shipping that shows up in the cart, how can this be changed? i have looked in your onepage billing phtml file but can not see it in here.

Please can you take a look soonest, many thanks

Hi Stuart,

-- To change in estimate shipping and tax section in cart page, you go to file: /app/design/frontend/default/jm_adamite/template/checkout/cart/shipping.phtml, and change State/Province text to your own word

PHP Code:

<label for="region_id"<?php if ($this->isStateProvinceRequired()) echo ' class="required"' ?>><?php if ($this->isStateProvinceRequired()) echo '<em>*</em>' ?><?php echo $this->__('State/Province'?></label>

-- To change for shipping information, go to file: /app/design/frontend/default/jm_adamite/template/checkout/onepage/shipping.phtml and make your change like above.

And let me know if you need further helps.
