Everything is an issue for jira and you can define as many different issuetypes as you want. Out of the box you have issuetypes like epic, story, task, subtask... You could create the types TASK-A, TASK-B...

I understand, but the question is if i can change the name on the main board. Because user whant to see "task"  in place of "issues". I will attach photo of the place i want to change name in.

For example:

-i want "Issues" to be "Tasks"

-or "Projects" to be "Companys"

all this in the main menu or everywhere in jira

I see. I'm sorry about the missunderstanding.

I'm afraid I don't know of any plugin for the clould version that can do that. Maybe it exists but I'm not aware of it.

I know for server but I don't think that does anything for you since you've tagged your question as "cloud".

Best of luck on your search. Hopefully someone else knows a solution for your use case.

This would be a bad move. 

On "issue" and "projects" specifically, it makes a nonsense of the UI.  What happens when you have a Task types like Story, Epic, Asset etc?  They're clearly not "Tasks".  Similarly with project - you really want company reports instead of project reports?  Configuration settings called filter/company selection?  The words you've chosen as replacements are not good words to use for them.

You'll also impose training and localisation costs on your new users, plus making it harder to know what people are talking about, especially for people who've used Jira before.  Plus all the training and documentation uses Jira-speak, so you'll be making that harder for people new to it.

Anyway, the technical answer is that you can't do this on Cloud.  On server, it's possible to create a "language pack" to change it all, but Cloud only supports a standard set of language packs, you can't create your own.

Ok, but this decision for another language (Russia). And thx for answer , its not for cloud version, its my mistake. So it is possible to do so !
