How to debug multiple translations in Magento?

When your store is dealing with multiple translations, sometimes you just want to see a list of which translations are coming from what modules. Magento doesn’t offer a way to get this information without editing the core, so what I am about to do should only be done for debugging and then removed.

First, located:

  • File: app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Translate.php
  • Class: Mage_Core_Model_Translate
  • Function: translate()

Then, right before the line “return $result;”, put the following snippet of code:

This will, for every request, write a bunch of lines to the translate.log file under /var/log.

The file will looks something like:

After you figure out which module is displaying the translation, remove the lines of code from Mage_Core_Model_Translate and be on your merry way!
