WooCommerce: Rename Product Description Tab Label @ Single Product Page

Product tabs show on the single product page, right below the image gallery. Tab labels are “Description”, “Additional Information”, “Reviews” by default – but what if you wish to rename them into something more relevant to your users?

Here’s a simple PHP snippet you can copy/paste into your child theme’s functions.php file to immediately change the “Description” tab name – enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

function bbloomer_rename_description_product_tab_label() {
    return 'New Name';

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (before "?>" if you have it). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7+.

  1. Hey, thanks for this. Just wanted to say that the code for renaming tabs on the WooCommerce website (https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/editing-product-data-tabs/) had a bug. It would force the Additional Information tab to appear on every page even when a product had no additional information. So I added your code to my functions file, but then I also copied it and modified it slightly to make it rename the Additional Information tab as well. I put that code right under your code. Here’s what it is:

    add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_additional_information_tab_title', 'bbloomer_rename_additional_information_product_tab_label' );
    function bbloomer_rename_additional_information_product_tab_label() {
        return 'New Name';

    I’m guessing it will also work for the Reviews tab.

    1. Nice!

  2. Just what I needed! Grazie Rodolfo!

    1. Prego ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. How can i change the label which is under the tab like “Description” ?
    The above snippet is only change the tab title not content title.

  4. How should the code look if I want to change the Additional information tab to Size Options?

    1. Hey Carole, thanks for your comment! Instead of “woocommerce_product_description_tab_title” try using “woocommerce_product_additional_information_tab_title”
