I'm using LaTeX in order to write my thesis and to make a good impression to the reader. As long as I'm not a very experienced user I use a template from Master/Doctoral Thesis from LaTeX Templates. So, here is the problem I'm dealing with.. It may sound very stupid for most of you but I can't change the title languages at all. Let me explain, I'm Catalan and I would like to write the thesis in Catalan but the template is in English so I'm using \usepackage[catalan]{babel} at the beginning. Some of them have already changed but not all and I don't know how to do it. For example: when I write \tableofcontents the title is Índex which is correct in Catalan and the same happens with \listoffigures, etc.. But when you look at the table of contents it doesn't appear in Catalan. Instead

Llista de figures

appears as

List of Figures

and so on. I would like to put all in Catalan the acknowledgements, declaration of authorship, etc.. Do you have any advice for me? I would be very grateful.

Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. Usually, we don't put a greeting or a “thank you” in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting answers is the preferred way here to say “thank you” to users who helped you. –  Mario S. E. Oct 14 '13 at 10:45
Have you tried running the file a couple of times? –  Mario S. E. Oct 14 '13 at 11:05
Unfortunately the class has hardcoded English names. Since it seems this class is not required, use another one, like the standard ones, koma o memoir. –  Javier Bezos Oct 14 '13 at 14:38
