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 :-

– Change


– Refresh Cache (System –> Cache Management)

That’s all.

Hope this helps. Thanks.
