How do I edit e-mail messages?

How do I easily edit which e-mail messages are being sent through my set-up of Vanilla forums [www.toneelgroepantwerpen.be]?

Specifically, I mean the e-mail when a new member is invited, I would love to change it into a simple Dutch message.

I can't manage to find a plug-in to do it, nor can I find the text anywhere in my set-up. Thanks a bunch in advance!

    Welcome to the community!

    What version of Vanilla are you running?

    I believe you are looking for locale definitions for email.

    In /applications/dashboard/locale/en-CA/definitions.php you will find some default translation strings. Copy the definitions you want to change and place them in /conf/locale.php. Then change to your heart's desire!

    Some definitions have variable placeholders. The email invite definition is $Definition['EmailInvitation'] and has %1$s, %2$s, %3$s. %1$s represents the person inviting, %2$s is the name of the forums, and %3$s is the registration Url. Be sure to include %3$s in your new definition.

    One more quick question, where can I find the invitation-subject, now it says: [site-title]: Invitation, I would love to be able to change that as well!

    Again thanks a million!

    $Definition['[%s] Invitation'] = 'You are invited to the very elite and luxurious %s!'; where %s is your forum title.
