How to change "List Item Action Menus" text in Sharepoint


If you want to change the text of "List Item Action Menus" that appears as drop-down lists in SharePoint, you can achieve that by editing Core.JS and OWS.js files in the 12 hive at the location C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033\
Note:- But please be aware that this is not a recommended process because if you get any SharePoint updates or migrate sites from one server to another server you would lose these changes. But putting down here anyway!
Before:
var L_ViewItem_Text="View Item";
var L_EditItem_Text="Edit Item";
var L_DeleteItem_Text="Delete Item";
var L_Subscribe_Text="Alert Me";
var L_MngPerms_Text="Manage Permissions";
After:
var L_ViewItem_Text="View this record";
var L_EditItem_Text="Edit this record";
var L_DeleteItem_Text="Delete this record";
var L_MngPerms_Text="Manage Permissions for this record";
var L_Subscribe_Text="Alert Me for this record";
