I am working on a template in overleaf and there is used babel for translation so almost everything is in Spanish. I am trying to translate it in English.

I tried some modification but with no result.

I am sharing the project link with you: https://www.overleaf.com/1827398957whpbxycnbfpr

I need to translate MOSTLY the word Indice general. Just one example would be enough.

Thank you!

    you should be able to make a small example by discarding everything not relevant to the question, to make an example showing the output from \chapter is not likely to be more than a few dozen lines, but if you really can not do that, a public link to overleaf is better than nothing Commented Dec 11, 2018 at 21:38
  • Have you tried to comment out or remove the line that looks like \usepackage[spanish]{babel}?

  • Yes I tried. By posting the link I mean I will ommit everything from my project that is not related to this, but still te code is too long to post here.

The project uses esi-tfm.cls(source: https://bitbucket.org/arco_group/esi-tfg), which contains \usepackage[spanish]{babel}.

To override this with English without modifying the .cls, add the following line before \documentclass:


Or if your intention is to modify the .cls, then you can simply comment out the \usepackage[spanish]{babel} line.
