# How to change the name of document elements like “Figure”, “Contents”, “Bibliography” in Latex

I’d like to modify the names used to typeset some of my document elements. For example, the caption of figure floats should change from “Figure” to “Fig.”, and my \tableofcontentssectioning heading shouldn’t read “Contents”, but “Table of Contents”.

I get the step by step from this source :

Tex exchange

For me, since I am using \usepackage[english]{babel} the following is works by adding it before \begin{document}

\addto\captionsenglish{%
\renewcommand{\figurename}{Fig.}%
}
