Big Pimpin: Revise User Interface Text

Xbmc has great multilingual support. Because of that, we can take advantage of the language files that are used to present text in the user interface. So if you'd like a word to be displayed differently, its simple.

Find your language file inside of your Xbmc install. They're located in /xbmc/language. Pick your language, I picked English. Inside this folder you'll find strings.xml. This file has every word used by Xbmc by its user interface. Find the word you want changed, change it, and save it. Done!

For example, I hate that it says "My Programs" on the home screen. Since I use this view primarily for games and emulators, I'd rather it say "My Games". So I changed it:

<string><id>0</id><value>My Programs</value></string>

changes to

<string><id>0</id><value>My Games</value></string>

Pretty simple eh?

  • There are two major types of acne blemishes; non-inflammatory acne and inflammatory acne. The non-inflammatory category is divided into two categories; closed comedo and open comedo. A closed comedo is otherwise known as a whitehead and appears on the skin surface as a small whitish or yellowish bump. The open comedo is also known as a blackhead. It is dark in appearance but, contrary to popular belief, is not a build-up of dirt. It is actually a build-up of melanin, a chemical that makes up the pigment of the skin surface. Blackheads and whiteheads can be prevented and controlled by using anti-inflammatory cleansers such as Proactiv or products that contain aloe vera.
