Sana Texts

Sana texts are the text items that are shown on the frontend. Sana texts cover almost all text items: messages, error messages, validation messages, text of the links and buttons, titles and headers (except for the product titles and content page headers), field names, popup descriptions and titles, alt texts of the images, buttons and input fields and others.

Sana texts can be edited in the backoffice at the following location 'Content -> Sana texts' or directly from the frontend in the edit mode:

Sana Texts

More detailed information about how to edit or create Sana texts directly from the frontend, please read this chapter.

Sana texts can be filtered by description, group code and language.

If you edit Sana text and it is used in different places this Sana text will be updated everywhere it is used on the frontend.

To create a new Sana text you need to specify the language, group code and add description:

Name Description
Language The language of the Sana text.
Group code Group code is used to group multiple Sana texts that have multiple languages using a code.
Description The actual text that is shown on the frontend.

For the English and Dutch languages Sana texts exist in the backoffice by default. If you install the additional language in the Sana Commerce solution, the language-specific Sana texts will be automatically added by the language pack. The language-specific Sana texts can be also edited and created directly from the frontend.
More information about supported languages can be found here.

Adding a new Sana text is only useful in case of customization. It is not possible to add a new text item on a location on the frontend where no text is present.

There are also three Sana texts where you can directly enter JavaScript and CSS and apply it to the frontend. For more information, see 'How to Add Custom CSS and JavaScript'.
