Contact form is a necessary tool that can help you to contact your customers. The new JB contact extension is generated based on the information and fields of the core Joomla contact component and the labels which are shown by the JB Contact extension are a part of the core Joomla contact component. Our tutorial today is relevant to this part of your site that introduces you to how to change or translate the contact component text strings. Let’s follow your introduction below!
1: First, let log in Joomla admin panel and go to Extensions, choose Language Manager and click on Overrides.
2: Press on the green New button.
