  • You can use hook_form_alter to alter the node form and JS callback to change the #value property of the element of the field you wish to change
  • Use the sample code snippet below to change the Add another item text for mulitgroup and multi value fields
            elseif (isset($elements[$key][$key .'_add_more']['#group_name'])) {
              // Obtain information about the multigroup.
              $groups = fieldgroup_groups($type_name);
              $group = $groups[$key];
              // Change the label of the button.
              $elements[$key][$key .'_add_more']['#value'] = t('Add another item to @name', array('@name' => t($group['label'])));
          else {
            // Recurse through all children elements.
  • Drupal 7 users can Download and install the custom Custom Add Another module to achieve the same effect
