is there a way to relabel external id? I want to use it but set it for our client in a way they are used to. I've tried Word Replacement but it seemed ineffective.

Any ideas?


External ID can be replaced with word replacement but it has to be done directly with the original English chain 'External ID' and not its translation that I wanted to replace again.

Something like 'External ID' >> 'Code fédéral'

You can do this with a buildForm hook if you want to, or by customizing a template (see https://docs.civicrm.org/dev/en/latest/framework/templates/customizing/)

You can also do it with the Contact Layout Editor extension (https://civicrm.org/extensions/contact-layout-editor).
