    I trying to replace some default Phrases like the 'Categories' phrase to 'surname' and 'Pages' to 'new name'

    How can I do this in WordPress?


    Thank you for your help!

    If your Pages and Categories are set up in a widgets panel, you can change them there. Dashboard --> Design --> Widgets.

    If your theme does not support widgets, then you need to edit your sidebar.php file (make a backup copy of it, first!)

    Dashboard--> Design--> Theme Editor -- sidebar.php

    Find the word "Pages". It's probably wrapped in a <h2> or <h3> tag, but I'm not able to tell you for certain because you don't provide a link to the site in question.

    Once you find it, change it to the term you want, and then do the same with "Categories."

    Remember to back up your file first! And you might want to read the Codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Blog_Design_and_Layout
