The BEST way would be to have the strings be part of the skin mechanism
and allow admins to swtich between them on install and after (i.e. your
site will be for primarily: art, music, video, all, etc.) because if you
make it too generic no one, at any kind of installation will know what
you're talking about in those form tips. In many cases by the time you
dance around the word 'remix' you run the rist of causing more confusion
than not. If that's not generic enough, certainly the terms like 'mod'
and 'mashup' has been miused enough.
Second best would be to expose a string editor to admins that allows
them, without changing code, to customize the screens to whatever they
want. That editor would save the results to the translation file. Which
brings me to...
Barring that, the easiest way to do it today is to edit the strings in:
ccextras/cc-lang.inc => cc-lang.php
and away you go.
