    <action method="addTab" translate="title" module="catalog"><alias>description</alias><title>Product Description</title><block>catalog/product_view_description</block><template>catalog/product/view/description.phtml</template></action>

code in /app/design/frontend/default/default/layout/catalog.xml file below the

<action method="setTierPriceTemplate"><template>catalog/product/view/tierprices.phtml</template></action>

Step 3: Copy /app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/view.phtml file in /app/design/frontend/default/default/template/catalog/product/ folder.

Step 4: Copy /app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/view/description.phtml file in /app/design/frontend/default/default/template/catalog/product/view/ folder.
