    HI,

    You can create aliases (alternate names) for members in a dimension so that their labels appear differently in the view.

    Aliases can be created for the members of discrete dimensions only. They cannot be created for continuous dimensions, dates, or measures.

    Note: When using a published data source, you cannot create or edit aliases.

    To create an alias:

    1. In the Data pane, right-click a dimension and select Aliases.

    2. In the Edit Aliases dialog box, under Value (Alias), select a member and enter a new name.

      Tip: To reset the member names back to their original names, click Clear Aliases.

    3. To submit your changes:
      • In Tableau Desktop, click OK.
      • On Tableau Server or Tableau Online, click the X icon in the top-right corner of the dialog box.
    When you add the field to the view, the alias names appear as labels in the view. For example,

    I am sure this will help you.
