I want to change the caption "Table" to "Πίνακας". So, the greek word is "Πίνακας". I have tried many commands but nothing works.

I have also tried with the package babel but it does not work.

When I use \renewcommand{\tablename}{Πίνακας} the result is:

\begin{longtable}{c c c c | c c c c}    
    \caption{\textit{Upper bounds on M with q=3}} \\ [-2ex]
    \hline
    Sr no. & \textit{N} & \textit{M} & \textit{E(f$ _{NOD} $)}& Sr no. & \textit{N} & \textit{M} & \textit{E(f$ _{NOD} $)}\\ 
    \hline
    1        &6    &5    &2   &17       &54   &25     &0\\
    2        &9    &4    &0   &18       &57   &29     &2\\
    3       &12    &7    &2   &19       &60   &31     &2\\
    4       &15    &8    &2   &20      &63   &31     &0\\
    5       &18    &7    &0   &21       &66   &34     &2\\
    6       &21   &11    &2   &22       &69   &35     &2\\
    7       &24   &13    &2   &23      &72   &34     &0\\
    8       &27   &13    &0   &24       &75   &38     &2\\
    9      &30   &16    &2   &25       &78   &40     &2\\
    10       &33   &17    &2   &26       &81   &40     &0\\
    11       &36   &16    &0   &27       &84   &43     &2\\
    12       &39   &20    &2   &28       &87   &44     &2\\
    13       &42   &22    &2   &29       &90   &43     &0\\
    14       &45   &22    &0   &30       &93   &47     &2\\
    15      &48   &25    &2   &31       &96   &49     &2 \\
    16     &51  &26    &2   &32       &99   &49     &0\\
    \hline 
\end{longtable}

When I use \renewcommand{\tablename}{ΠΙΝΑΚΑΣ} the result is: enter image description here

I think that the problem is about lowercase and uppercase.

Does anyone know how to fix it?

Thank you!

    Could you please provide the code which produces your first image as a minimal working example? Which packages do you use for that, which documentclass? Do you use LuaLaTeX or XeLaTeX? – Skillmon Jun 28 '17 at 11:58
  • For the future: When you insert a code block don't use the high ticks to mark it (that is inline code), but mark the whole block (using your mouse) and hit the {}-like icon in the editor, that marks it as code (or start every line with 4 spaces). Also: The code you have provided is not a MWE. A MWE begins at \documentclass and ends at \end{document} and loads every package which is necessary to make it compilable. – Skillmon Jun 28 '17 at 12:07
  • My document class is harvard-thesis. I use LaTex. – Vassilis Chasiotis Jun 28 '17 at 12:32
  • Sorry, but without a pointer to the class you are using, together with a minimal example of code, it's impossible to guess what's going wrong. – egreg Jun 28 '17 at 14:19

For me the following works:

\documentclass[]{article}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{longtable}

\usepackage[main=english,greek]{babel}

\addto\captionsenglish{
    \renewcommand*{\tablename}{\textbf{\foreignlanguage{greek}{Πίνακας}}}%
}

\begin{document}
\begin{table}
    \centering
    \begin{tabular}{cc}
        test&test
    \end{tabular}
    \caption{test}
    \label{tab:test}
\end{table}
\begin{longtable}{c c c c | c c c c}    
    \caption{\textit{Upper bounds on M with q=3}} \\ [-2ex]
    \hline
    Sr no. & \textit{N} & \textit{M} & \textit{E(f$ _{NOD} $)}& Sr no. & \textit{N} & \textit{M} & \textit{E(f$ _{NOD} $)}\\

  • It is still not working on me! The result is the same as the second picture in my question! – Vassilis Chasiotis Jun 28 '17 at 12:26
  • Do you have any idea why it does not work on me? – Vassilis Chasiotis Jun 28 '17 at 13:00
  • @VassilisChasiotis do you compile it with pdflatex? – Michael Fraiman Jun 28 '17 at 13:35
  • No @MichaelFraiman. I complile it with xeLaTex. – Vassilis Chasiotis Jun 28 '17 at 13:44
  • @MichaelFraiman when I compile it with pdfLaTex the log is: * XeTeX is required to compile this document. \RequireXeTeX – Vassilis Chasiotis Jun 28 '17 at 13:51

As the OP mentioned, s/he uses XeLaTeX, so a solution using polyglossia package is the following (based on the answer by @Skillmon).

\documentclass{article}


\usepackage{longtable}

%\usepackage[main=english,greek]{babel}

\usepackage{polyglossia}
\setmainlanguage{english}
\setmainfont{Times New Roman}
\newfontfamily\greekfont{Times New Roman}

\addto\captionsenglish{
 \renewcommand*{\tablename}{\textbf{Πίνακας}}%
}

\begin{document}
\begin{table}
 \centering
 \begin{tabular}{cc}
     test&test
 \end{tabular}
 \caption{test}
 \label{tab:test}
\end{table}
\begin{longtable}{c c c c | c c c c}    
 \caption{\textit{Upper bounds on M with q=3}} \\ [-2ex]
 \hline
 Sr no. & \textit{N} & \textit{M} & \textit{E(f$ _{NOD} $)}& Sr no. & \textit{N} & \textit{M} & \textit{E(f$ _{NOD} $)}\\ 
 \hline

  • I cannot understand what I am doing wrong, but it does not work! The result is just the first letter ( Π ), but not the whole word (Πίνακας). Note that the file is compiled without errors. – Vassilis Chasiotis Jun 28 '17 at 14:11
  • Have you tried this code in a separate file? – Michael Fraiman Jun 28 '17 at 14:14
  • I am using the harvard-thesis for my PhD thesis. You can download it here: sharelatex.com/templates/thesis/harvard-phd – Vassilis Chasiotis Jun 28 '17 at 14:21
  • @VassilisChasiotis does changing the class in my code result in such beaviour? – Michael Fraiman Jun 28 '17 at 14:23
