# Change automatically generated Text in sources with natbib

In my source directory of the thesis I am currently working on, I have got a masters's thesis as one source. As type for this source I chose Master thesis and now Latex always writes "master's thesis" inside my german source directory. Is there a way to change this to "Masterarbeit"?

• Please, add the .bib entry to your question; however, including in it the field type={Masterarbeit}, should do. May 12 '13 at 11:00

A mastersthesis entry accepts a type field:

\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}
@mastersthesis{x,
author={Me Myself},
title={My thesis},
type={Masterarbeit},
school={That School},
year={2020},
}
\end{filecontents*}

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\cite{x}
\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{\jobname}
\end{document}
