How change the name of Main Titles

Postby Ramon » Sun May 22, 2011 7:31 am

Dear all,

I been writing my thesis in SWP, but this document must be writed in spanish, so I was select the package of bable->spanish, but that doesn't works. I want to make that the main titles (Table of Contents, Chapter, Part, Table of Figures) appears in Spanish (Indice, Capìtulo, Parte, Tabla de Imágenes) but the package only change "Part".

¿Do you know how I can put the right package for this?

If this is not posible, I must change tha main titles as I said before. Please tell how I can do that.

In advance, many thanks.

Ramón

Hi Ramón,

use

  1. \addto\captionsspanish{\renewcommand\contentsname{Indice}}


if you use babel and Spanish, or if not:

  1. \renewcommand{\contentsname}{Indice}

Dear Stefan,

I put it that codes on my document with Text Field but doesn't works. But I think that maybe is posible change the main titles by appart. I been used a prefabricated thesis available on SWP from University of Washington.

I wonder to change tha main titles as follow:

TABLE OF CONTENTS -> INDICE
LIST OF FIGURES -> LISTADO DE FIGURAS
LIST OF TABLES -> LISTADO DE CUADROS
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS -> AGRADECIMIENTOS
DEDICATION -> DEDICATORIA
CHAPTER 1...N -> CAPÍTULO 1...N

In advance, many thanks.

Hi Ramón,

perhaps post that template here. I guess there aren't so many SWP users here, since SWP is not freely available. If I would own SWP software, I would also provide support for it. At the moment, I can offer help regarding just TeX, LaTeX and further free software.

You could post your question in the User forum of the producer of that software. Though come back here for LaTeX related questions. ;)

Sorry Stefan and Ramon, I missed this post. The solution to this problem is posted on http://www.mackichan.com/. (Do a search on babel.) The attached file demonstrates the solution to your problem. Notice that you must add the babel package and select the appropriate language option. Include the tex field to establish the language you want to use.

Well, yes, I see that forum and that answer isn't work for me. But, this is the answer that I been used:

\textofDed{Dedicaticatoria}
\textofAck{Agradecimientos}
\textofToC{Indice}
\textofLoF{Listado de Figuras}
\textofLoT{Listado de Cuadros}
\textofChapter{Cap\'{i}tulo}

Rgds.
