# EuropeCV-Class tweak german translation?

So i want to create a new CV. I use the following basic code:

documentclass[helvetica,narrow,nologo,nobranding,german]{europecv}
usepackage[a4paper,top=1.27cm,left=1cm,right=1cm,bottom=2cm]{geometry}
usepackage{graphicx}
begin{document}
begin{europecv}

ecvpersonalinfo

end{europecv}
end{document}


So instead of: "Name / Surname" the result "Nachname(n) / Vorname(n)" gets displayed. This looks very machine-made. I would prefer: "Vorname Nachname".

I’ve read the class-documentation on CTAN, but unfortunately i found nothing so far. Can someone give me a hint?

The translations are given in the various .def files, the one for German is ecvde.def. In that file you find the following line:

[email protected]{[email protected]{Nachname(n) / Vorname(n)}}


You can change the translation by redefining this command in your own .tex file after the package is loaded. Because the line contains @ symbols you need to surround the redefinition with makeatletter and makeatother.

MWE:

documentclass[helvetica,narrow,nologo,nobranding,german]{europecv}
makeatletter
[email protected]{[email protected]{Vorname Nachname}}
makeatother
usepackage[a4paper,top=1.27cm,left=1cm,right=1cm,bottom=2cm]{geometry}
usepackage{graphicx}
begin{document}
begin{europecv}

ecvpersonalinfo

end{europecv}
end{document}


Result:
