If you are using non English language(es):

Video tutorial by Template-help.com: How to install a new language

"Most Popular" sentence is not present in the default language packs. We need to add it manually.
Open file directory where your magento is. Go to "app/design/frontend/default/[YourTheme]/locale/"

There is a "en_US/translate.csv" file there. Copy it to any locale you need (like "da_DK/translate.csv") and edit "translate.csv" file.
It holds this text:
"Most Popular","Most Popular"
You need to change it to:
"Most Popular","[[Most popular in your language]]"

Note that file encoding should be UTF8.

Congratulations! Your magento theme is ready!

Thank you for using this theme.
