How to rename item type elements?

I want to rename a element of a item type (such as “original format” inside “Text” item type").

I have some data behind this element and cannot just delete it and create a new one.

I know I have to directly modify the mysql database. I know it could be not safe and I have to be careful.

I cannot find where I can modify the name of such element in the mysql database. Could someone indicate to me where it is located?

Ok I found it.

For those who are interested, it is under omeka_elements.

Modification works except in one case.

I cannot rename “Zone” to “Zone géographique”. I have an internal error if I do that.

Any idea why?

It is possible that the ‘é’ character is causing an issue. Have you tried renaming it without the é?
