How to translate form labels in Magento’s Admin Area

Posted on August 2nd, 2011 | Posted by admin

Since Magento has built in functionality for translations, you can ask yourself why Magento doesn’t want to translate my labels… and everything is set up correctly!
For all of you who work on Magento for a while and you didn’t yet needed to translate everything in Magento admin area here is a short “howto” on what you can do:
go to app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Widget/Form.php

'label' => Mage::helper('core')->__($attribute->getFrontend()->getLabel()),
