Is it possible to change the name of the of 'Products' to 'Projects' & Variants to 'Pledges'? I would like to use the Commerce CMS as a base to start from but need to be able to change certain naming of sections. Where can I do this?

You can do this using a custom translations file for Commerce and override some of the default translation strings.

  1. Go to vendor/commerce/translation/[your-language].php
  2. Review the instances of the word you want to translate (could be a lot)
  3. In your project root, create a directory called translations
  4. Inside of this directory create a directory with your language code (for me it's en).
  5. Inside of the language directory create a file called commerce.php.

In commerce.php start with something like this:

  return [
     'Products' => 'Projects' 

And keep going until you have all the strings you want translated added.

Commerce 3.0 introduces the ability to rename the Product Title and Variant Title when creating a product type.
