What happens if you use one of Joomla's templates ?

Is your 2.5 up to date ?

I believe I am using the most current update Joomla 2.5.16

I am using a 3rd party template and so far the site appears to be working fine. I am not sure if I need to do anything about the error code.

The template you are referring to being a commercial template suggest getting in touch with the template's developer.

Be informed that in core Joomla! the language strings are in the format as shown below:
LANGUAGE_STRING_CONSTANT="Language String Variable"

Note: If there is a double quotes used in the language string variable then it has to be represented as "_QQ_" or "

You could check in the file JROOT/language/en-GB/en-GB.tpl_shaper_megadeal.ini and check how the language string is defined.

Note: Other than parsing errors noticed that there are several language files that are not loaded. Check whether these files exist. If not you may like to check the extension probably by installing it on an another instance. If the files exist, you may have to check the file permissions.

Thanks Imanickam

I was able to reach out to the template's developer and they worked with me to remove the errors from the language string :)
