Of course, you need to go workflow for this issue type, then found transition "Decline", and rename it.

Hi Foad,

I don't think you can actually change the name of these buttons and nor did I find any feature requests for them.  I looked at the properties and options on our approvals and did not see any text.  Even looked in the xml of the workflow.

Perhaps you should raise a feature request with Atlassian for this improvement. 

Hope that helps
