Magento: How to change Currency symbol ?
I had to change the currency symbol of Nepalese Rupee (from Nrs to Rs). By default, the currency symbol for Nepalese Rupee is Nrs.
For this, you need to edit lib/Zend/Locale/Data/en.xml
Well, the xml file to edit depends upon your locale settings. My locale is set to English (United States). So, I will have to change en.xml file.
You can change your locale setting from
Admin Panel –> System –> Configuration –> GENERAL –> General –> Locale options –> Locale
If your locale is Japanese (Japan), you need to change lib/Zend/Locale/Data/ja.xml
If your locale is Hindi (India), you need to change lib/Zend/Locale/Data/ne.xml
It’s similar for other locale settings. I have locale setting as English, so I will be editing lib/Zend/Locale/Data/en.xml file.
Here is the step-by-step guide:
– Open lib/Zend/Locale/Data/en.xml
– Find the following :-
123456 <currency type="NPR"><displayName>Nepalese Rupee</displayName><displayName count="one">Nepalese rupee</displayName><displayName count="other">Nepalese rupees</displayName><symbol>Nrs</symbol></currency>
– Refresh Cache (System –> Cache Management)
Hope this helps. Thanks.
