Question about changing url structure?

I want to change the name of the page of my url structure? Example www.domain.com/page/73 to www.domain.com/topic/73

How do I change "page" to "topic" in wordpress?

Can you do what you want with the permalink settings [codex.wordpress.org]?

I already set the permalinks to "Day and name" but the page is still appearing.

Let's say I want to change www.domain.com/page/2 to www.domain.com/mypage/2

how do I convert page to mypage?

In your example above, is /mypage/2 a real page or just a URL you wish to use? If it's a fake page that you want to resolve to /page/2 then you can use a redirection plugin

How many of these pages/urls do you have?

actually I want the word "page" to replace to "pagina". So it should look like this www.domain.com/pagina/2

Is there a way to do that?

Just a note (and I apologize if I you already know this).

If you do 301 redirects to those new pages with the /pagina/ URL format, you will lose link juice from backlinks to those pages.

Are you talking about pages that already exist, or pages you will be creating in the future?

Naming new pages is one thing. Redirecting existing pages is another.

i would like my WP URLs to be fully in the language of one of my clients so instead of:

site.com/page/2/

i would like to have:

site.com/pagina/2/ (in spanish)

how can i accomplish this? i tried to do simple str_replace on default rules but when accessing site.com/pagina/2/ WP redirects me to site.com/pagina/2/page/2/

any ideas what could be wrong ?

I figured it out. I asked on Wordpress forum.
