I have, for example, a section of a book with the label 'Bases'.

I want to create a hyperlink every time I type 'Bases' in my text without putting a command like ~\ref{}.


Why don't simply use a new command?


    \section{Just for example}\label{Bases}
    This is the reference \Bases to the section.
    This is another reference \Bases.

The hyperlinks aren't shown in the image but there are in the .pdf:

If you use fancyref package it is better to put sec: before the reference name "Bases", see LaTeX/Labels and Cross-referencing for more info.


This might be a simple way of doing it. Just add a command for each word. The \ behind the command in the text is just to make the following space character render as a space.


All your \base\ are belong to us!

Example output:

All your base
