    You mean, the field names? Or do you want to remove fields entirely?

    Field names can be changed using our language files, .po and .mo . Might want to grab poEdit for that.

    Thanks for answer Matt,
    well not remove them entirely, mostly the "Postal Code"...

    Oh about the poEdit, I try finish the spanish translation but some of the strings (58) are obsolete and with a lot new (225), was there a big update and no one have updated this? Is there a way I can share my translation with the Jigoshop team and be accepted?

    Ok I updated the .po file with the .pot and there is new(78)/obsolete(26) I'll work with those.

    About removing the Postal Code field, is this posible??

    Yes, if you have a translation to share with us then by all means, please do! We'd gladly accept it :)

    Here's an example on how to make postal field optional.

    Thanks for your help Matt,
    Just in case someone else come to check out this post this is the path of the file


    In line 46

    array( 'validate' => 'postcode', 'format' => 'postcode', 'name'=>'billing-postcode', 'label' => __('Postcode', 'jigoshop'), 'placeholder' => __('Postcode', 'jigoshop'), 'required' => true, 'class' => array('form-row-last') ),

    Change 'required' => true to => false

    Also here is my updated translation for spanish.

    Thanks for the update, I've added one of our developers to the thread so he can implement the translation later on =).
