Hi, is there a way to customize the labels used by EE? For example rename event to courses or venue to location? Thanks, Frank

Changing the ‘/events/’ slug can be done within the admin:

But the labels used throughout will each need to be manually translated using something like POEdit and the translation files from our GlotPress Project:

Hi Tony, thanks for the info, will check it out. We’re new to EE, is there a place to enter a feature request? Some competitor products have this functionality built in. I think it would allow more flexibility when using EE4 in different use cases.
