Change "above/below" cross-reference text (l10n)


when trying to insert an above/below type of cross-reference in my text (in Spanish), it works OK (the texts inserted is “arriba” or “abajo” depending on the relative position of the referenced figure). However, IMHO, “arriba” is not a correct translation for “above” (indeed, if you translate literally, above is “arriba”, but in the context of a scientific text, “la figura de arriba” sounds weird… again, in my opinion, above should be translated in this context as “superior”, and below as “inferior”, so you get, for example, “la figura superior”).
Anyway, I’d like to know if it is possible to set a custom text for that “above” and “below” strings that are inserted whenever an above/below cross-reference is selected.

Thanks for your help,
