In some cases ConTeXt generates text labels automatically; for example, the word Figure is generated automatically when a caption is placed under a figure. These kind of words are called label texts. Labels are set with the command \setuplabeltext, and retrieved with the command \labeltext. They follow the language set with \mainlanguage, not the local bits of different language that are set with \language.


Here is an example of changing section and subsection heads.

% English labels
\setuplabeltext[en][section=My section ] % We want a space at the end of the label
\setuplabeltext[en][subsection=My subsection ]

% Dutch labels
\setuplabeltext[nl][section=Mijn hoofdstuk ] % We want a space at the end of the label
\setuplabeltext[nl][subsection=Mijn onderdeel ]

\def\setheadnumber#1#2{#1. #2}



\section{First Thoughts}
\subsection{First Subsection}

% Changing the language does not change the labels
\section{Second Thoughts}
\subsection{Second Subsection}

% To change the labels, change the main language.
\section{Third Thoughts}
\subsection{Third Subsection}

% Retrieving a label explicity:
This is the Dutch label for sections: \labeltext{section}.
