Changing the weight symbol from lb to kg


Recommended Posts

I need to change the weight symbol to kilos (kg) instead of pounds (lb)


I have looked through a few of the PHP files that link to either the shipping modules and catalog to see if I could find anything. Obviously I found nothing or missed what I was looking for.


If any know how to change it, any help is appreciated.

If anybody else is wondering how to change the the weight from lb(s) to kg(s) or visa versa it very simple


Go to catalog/includes/languages/english/modules/shipping and open the PHP file ie. zones.php


This is from the zones.php file (Actually, its the whole file)


The bit to change is in Bold


define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_TITLE', 'Zone Based Shipping Rates');


define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_TEXT_WAY', 'Ground'); //no longer used


define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_INVALID_ZONE', 'No shipping available to the selected country');

define('MODULE_SHIPPING_ZONES_UNDEFINED_RATE', 'The shipping rate cannot be determined at this time');



I hope this helps others who need to change the how the weight looks in the checkout
