Hello @sarfaraz,

There is a plugin available on OJS - Custom Locale Plugin that allows you to make translations/textual changes locally.

The Custom Locale is only reliably available and operational for OJS/OMP/OPS 3.2.0 and newer and would suggest that you upgrade to OJS 3.2 or newer before using this plugin.

For more information on this, please see Customize a Translation Locally.

Thank you very much :slight_smile:
Unfortunately there arent any plans for upgrades till the end of the year.
I see with with OJS2 the payment plugin was more customizable.
Am i under the correct assumption there is no other way to correct this by changing publication fee to submission fee

Yes, OJS 3 offers simplified payment compared to OJS 2 which has been set as the Publication fee.

Thank you very much for the advice.
I have communicated this to our application owners.

For OJS 3.1.2, go to Settings → Workflow → Emails, and look for the email template - Manual payment notification. Here you can change the wording Publication fee by removing “{$itemName}” and replace it with the words Submission fee.
