In the code, you will have to change the config/locales/en.yml file (or any other language file that you or your team may use in the locales directory).

We changed "Issues" to "Tickets" since creating a new "Feature" under the "New Issue" tab does not make a whole lot of sense.

Thanks a lot Jim!

Could you please point me to the guide where one can read and learn about these features, and how we can play with them, if there's such a guide. THanks!

For those just seeing this post...

Be careful replacing the word issue with ticket. The word issue is used in the field name definitions (i.e. don't change the field names). I have attached modified files for Redmine you can try using or at least compare against your en.yml file which uses issue. Additionally, sometimes it is Issue and other times it is issue.

Files for:
  • Issue replaced by Ticket
  • Issue replaced by Task
  • Original file with Issue

If you prefer a different word and the en-issue.yml file matches your installed en.yml file, you can save time by using the ticket version of the file. In those you can blindly replace Ticket and ticket for your word.

Be sure to keep a copy of your en.yml file!!!

I believe a server restart is required. Good luck!

Thank you Scott for the advice and providing your modified files. Saved me a lot of time figuring out what to change.
