Change Post Code to Zip Code

Is there a way to change "Post Code" to "Zip Code" in the form where a customer creates an account? All of my customers will be in the U.S. and Zip Code is the proper term here. I've already had one customer ask what Post Code is.

Very easy to do. Open the catalog/includes/languages/english.php file and around line 195 you will find a line that reads:

 

define('ENTRY_POST_CODE', 'Post Code:');

 

Change the word Post to Zip in the second half of the statement as in:

 

define('ENTRY_POST_CODE', 'Zip Code:');

 

You will probably want to change the next line as well since it is related where it reads:

 

define('ENTRY_POST_CODE_ERROR', 'Your Postal Code must contain a minimum of ' . ENTRY_POSTCODE_MIN_LENGTH . ' characters.');

 

Since our store does business abroad as well as in the USA I changed the term from "Post Code" to "Postal Code" and haven't had any questions about that since.
