Change SharePoint Survey option “Specify your own value”

other
Found this good tips to change the default option “Specify your own value” to something else:

SharePoint 2010-Change Survey Option “Specify your own value:” to “Other:”

Quick instructions:
1. Edit the NewForm.aspx & EditForm.aspx using SharePoint Designer.
2. Add new Content Editor Web Part below the default List Form Web Part.
3. Add the following script in the CDATA section.

<script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[
     var labels = document.getElementsByTagName("label");
     for(var i = 0; i <labels.length; i++)
     {
            if(labels[i].innerHTML == "Specify your own value:")
                 labels[i].innerHTML = "Others, please specify:";
     }
// ]]></script>

There are other ways such as changing the masterpage or some of the core .js file, which I will not recommend.
