To translate PayPal texts, edit Mage_PayPal.csv in your app/locale folder (e.g. for Swedish, app/locale/sv_SE). I just had to do this myself for German: the translation for “What is PayPal?” wasn’t in there so I added it, so I know this works in 22.214.171.124 at least. You’ll need to include the punctuation marks, e.g.:
“What is PayPal?","Was ist PayPal?”
Don’t edit the CSV files in MS Excel. It will *always* mess it up. It has a real hard time understanding UTF-8 encoding, it seems to think CSV stands for “Tab Separated Values” so it replaces commas with tabs, and if you have any data that looks vaguely numeric Excel will reformat it.
Use a decent text editor like Notepad++ or UltraEdit.
Oh and don’t forget to clear the Magento cache afterwards.
Also, any suggestions about how we should try our payment section out? Since in paypal sandbox you need a paypal account to pay and 95% of our costumer probably won’t have one. We are thinking about putting products up for a real cheap price and try to buy them ourselves, is there any more effective way?
Not sure I understand this one. You try your payment section out yourselves, you don’t get your customers to do it. Don’t just put PayPal on a live site and go from there: set up a staging site and try it on that first. Put PayPal in sandbox mode, test it yourselves, then try a couple of low-value transactions in live mode, then when all’s well put it on the live site in live mode.
