Moodle provides a neat tool for admins to customise the strings in the installed language packs. This is the language customisation tool. It is available from:

  site admin -> language 


This is very useful, because you can change strings all over Moodle without touching core code, and the changes are all saved in the database. So they survive a backup,restore,Moodle version upgrade, or server migration. This allows you to customize text across Moodle without needing to write any code at all. 


By default Poodll does not offer the ability to change the language strings that you see in Poodll. But using Moodle's great toolset you can do this.


First, open the language customization tool ..


Then choose "English" because that is likely the source of the language you want to customize



Search for the line of text you wish to change. Once you have found it you will be able to add an alternate version and save it to the language pack
