I tested by typing in"Joomla Shop" in the search and it is returning no matching texts found. Please see attached screenshot.

What are you trying to search for? From what you have mentioned, you want to search for the text string "Joomla Shop".

In case if you are looking for text strings such as "Contribute!" or "Books!" or "Shop!" then be informed that they are part of the modules of the type Banner. These text strings are not language strings. So, you cannot find them.

I was using your post to test my system http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=706&t=757509
I was trying to figure out why in jevents I could not override the word "location" I came accross your post and used as test on the system. What I neglected to put in was the ! between joomla and shop. Language overrides work fine. Thank you for replying. Regarding the jevents do you have any idea why the word location or contact on the event input form will not override?

I would suggest looking into the language files of the extension(s) jEvent. The admin language files are located in the directory \administrator\language\en-GB and the site language files are located in the directory \language\en-GB.

Thank you that is a perfect work around until I can figure out why the overrides are not taking. I'll post the override issue on jevents and will post back here with any results. Thanks you again
