I am using the LJMU LaTeX Template to write my PhD thesis, and I would like to write it in french. Accordingly, to change from “CHAPTER” to “CHAPITRE”, "Bibliography" to "Bibliographie"; I tried to add the package


to the preamble, but it doesn't affect anything it still printing "chapter".

Any suggestions?

prints the correct french name for the toc:

For all other titles you have to change the documentclass, like Abstract-> Résumé and so on.

  • In which place you set \usepackage[french]{babel}?

  • Thank you very much for your answer. I've just realized that I made some changes in the class which cause the problem. I have another question. How can I make a blanck page between chapters?
