All the text output by our AmazonWS content plugin and the Amazon Shopping Cart is rendered as Joomla language strings, so can be overridden very simply using the Joomla language manager, see https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Language_Overrides_in_Joomla

To translate some text, in your Joomla admin go to Extensions->Languages->Overrides, then click the 'New' button, and search for the text that you want to translate. When you have found it, put your translation in the text box, and save.

There is a Joomla quirk that you should be aware of. Joomla saves plugin language files in the administrator languages folder. Plugins don't strictly apply either to the site or admininstrator section of the site, they can be used in either, as can their language files. So if you want to override plugin language strings then you should search for them in the administrator section, and select the 'For both locations' checkbox so that it can apply to the 'site' section of your site.

Alternatively, once you know what the required language constant is then you can just create a 'site' override, this will work just as well. For example, these are some of the translateable strings used in the output:
