Months Name in Arabic Pack
 

I want to change the arabic text for the month. I searched inside Language Customizations and could not find the arabic string I need to change. 

For example, when I searched for “July”, it came inside the component “editor_tinymce” as "يوليو"  which was I want to see on the website but actually what I see is "تموز" which is another arabic translation for the same month. From where did this translation come from as searching for it in the language pack does not bring anything?

Thanks. After reading the documentation and searching the fourms, it seems that the only way (which  worked for me) is by adding: 

$datestring = str_replace('currentname','newname',$datestring);

for every month name in date_format_string function inside lib/moodlelib.php

Thank you for your feedback - glad you found a solution!

I'm sorry the default way doesn't work for you and you had to hack the code (thanks for open source!). Just for future reference: which operating system/version do you use on your server

I tested it out on Mac (latest iOS) and Windows 7 and using all browsers IE, Safari, Firefox and Chrome.

The problem is in the server-os, not your client.
