I created a chart with pgfplots package :


%%font is here:
%% https://github.com/rastikerdar/vazir-font/blob/master/dist/Vazir.tt
      listname={فهرست نمودارها},
      %within=section,% activate it if you want
      %chapterlistsgaps=on,% only meaningful when chapters exist
        y tick  label  style={
        /pgf/number format/1000 sep= },
        xlabel=\rl{توان مصرف شده بر حسب کیلووات},
        ylabel=\rl{تعداد ماشین‌های مجازی},
        legend style={at={(0.5,-0.3)},
        anchor=north,legend columns=-1},
        bar width=0.9em,
        nodes near coords,
    coordinates {(0.26,100) (0.33,150) 
            (0.45,200) (0.62,250)};
        coordinates {(0.25,100) (0.31,150)
             (0.42,200) (0.61,250)};

    \legend{ B\_M,S\_S}
    \caption{مقایسه مصرف انرژی با سیاست

under the chart in its chart name and number it wrote Plot ... . but I wanna it write that in my language I mean I wanna it write نمودار instead of Plot enter image description here

    (1) Welcome, (2) please post a full minimal example instead of a sniplet others cannot work with out of context. (3) This is not related to pgfplots at all, it comes from the \caption and is probably controlled by the plot env which you give no information about.

    @SaebMolaee yeah but \begin{plot} ... isn't part of the standard latex. You must have loaded some package to be able to use it and that package is responsible for "Plot 1-2". We can't say how to change it without even knowing which packages you are using. So again, please post a MWE
