We’d like to change the wording on some of the buttons and links used in the EE3 plugin and MER addon. Is there a language file we can modify?

You can search for a phrase that you see on your website through GlotPress under the Event Espresso 3 project like this one for “Add to Cart”

That will show you the exact phrase. Once you have that, then you can use a gettext filter ( to change the messaging and it can be added to a site specific plugin (

Hi Lorenzo — thanks. I tried using the GlotPress to find the button I wanted to change, but when I search for the phrase (“Enter Attendee Information”) it doesn’t find it.

Could you share a screenshot ( of that area?

Also, were there any other areas that you were having trouble with?
