Changing "Conversations" to "Private Messages"?

    Can we change the name "conversations" to "private messages"? I think conversations is confusing for the user and private messages is sort of standard wording. Has anyone encountered user confusion over this?

    Never encountered any confusion over the wording vs functionality of any features on xenforo.

    You can do this easily by editing the phrases in the ACP.

    This is what Kier had to say recently on the subject:

    Oh wow we can edit phrases? So we can change anything we want easily and re-name stuff in the software? What else can we change? This sounds cool.

    Pretty much everything.

    All phrases and templates are stored in the DB and can be edited from the ACP.

    Pretty much everything except XF branding phrase in the footer. I thought of translating it in the language of our board but could not find the phrase in the phrase manager, which fairly tells us not to do so as it might be in the license agreement not to change that.

    I think you can buy a unbranded version that costs a bit more.

    This is from the License agreement:
    You can of course purchase Branding Removal if you wish, which allows you to remove the visible XenForo copyright notice from all pages.

    Ah, I noticed that even branding text is there in the phrase manager but due to License agreement we should not alter it in any way (Not even translating it to other languages).
