quoting from
which information is also in the FAQ at

     # When looking for a template in a specific language, there are 4 
     # that are searched, in this order:
     # 1. the list-specific language directory
     #    lists/<listname>/<language>
     # 2. the domain-specific language directory
     #    templates/<list.host_name>/<language>
     # 3. the site-wide language directory
     #    templates/site/<language>
     # 4. the global default language directory
     #    templates/<language>

In other words, for example, if you want to change the English language
archtocnombox.html templaty for the 'examplelist' list only, you
create the directory lists/examplelist/en/ if it doesn't exist and
save the edited template as lists/examplelist/en/archtocnombox.html
(note the lists/examplelist/ directory will exist and contains the
list's config.pck, etc. files).
