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.

A mastersthesis entry accepts a type field:

 author={Me Myself},
 title={My thesis},
 school={That School},
