I tried both redefinitions I found on tex.stackexchange, they have no effect:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[UKenglish]{babel}
\renewcommand{\abstractname}{Executive Summary}
\addto{\captionsenglish}{\renewcommand{\abstractname}{Executive Summary}}

\begin{document}
\begin{abstract}
This work is an \ldots
\end{abstract}
\end{document}

Still renders as 'abstract':

So I followed my intuition, and you have to use the addto approach but replace english for UKenglish, like so:

\addto{\captionsUKenglish}{\renewcommand{\abstractname}{Executive Summary}}

  • I use similarly: tex \addto\extrasbritish{\renewcommand{\abstractname}{Executive Summary}} – rriemann Sep 9 at 22:07
