Hi, In ArcMap 10, in a layout map with a graticule in DMS, I want to change the label "W" for West by a "O" for "Ouest" (in french language). How can I do that? I want to continue to use the english version.

Thank you!

Mapping Center Answer:

Unfortunately this is not possible--the strings for english, N,S,E & W are localized in the software.  

You may be able to convert the graticule to graphics and manually edit the text, but if the map is meant for dynamic use or production, this will not work.
