    I've never tried that myself, but if you use your favorite web search engine to search for "change text of browse button in html file input"  you'll find numerous people asking the same question, and it's not WEF or WAS or IBM specific, it seems to be a limitation of current browsers and HTML that there isn't an easy way to do that like there is for most other HTML controls.

    Many of those search results offer suggestions on how to hide the control and provide your own, but I have not tried any of those myself, so I cannot recommend any particular one over others at this time.

    I hope that info helps,

    I found this simple & efficient solution:

    By this you can change/localize the text of new added input button easily.
