Rename Template "Custom" tab in SharePoint 2007

I was recently wondering if you could rename  that “Custom” tab when creating a new site that holds your custom site templates. Well, it turns out that you can. After searching a while on the net, i came across a post with the following information:

In SharePoint 2007, any custom templates added through the stsadm command stdadm -o addtemplate appear under the “Custom” tab.

This may not appear sufficiently corporate for some people. One easy fix is to simply modify the locale file at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\Resources\core.en-US.resx. Just find

  <!–TemplatePickerControl –>
<data name=”TemplatePickerControl_Custom”>

and modify <value> to anything you like.
