I have added support for this a few minutes ago.  Please discard/undo my
earlier suggestion and try configuring the new variable instead (see

With this change applied and *after* exporting the document via the ODT
exporter, you may want to:

1. create a figure/table index with Insert->Indexes and Tables->Indexes
   and Tables etc
2. insert a couple of figures tables etc *by hand*
3. update fields with Tools->Update->Update All

and make sure that you don't get any weird behaviour.

If there are non-English speakers who are reading this message and then
you may want to give me the localized equivalent for Table, Figure,
Equation in your language.

| org-export-odt-category-strings is a variable defined in `org-odt.el'.
| Its value is (("en" "Table" "Figure" "Equation" "Equation")
|  ("de" "Tabelle" "Abbildung" nil nil))
| Original value was 
| (("en" "Table" "Figure" "Equation" "Equation"))
| Documentation:
| Specify category strings for various captionable entities.
| Captionable entity can be one of a Table, an Embedded Image, a
| LaTeX fragment (generated with dvipng) or a Math Formula.
| For example, when `org-export-default-language' is "en", an
| embedded image will be captioned as "Figure 1: Orgmode Logo".
| If you want the images to be captioned instead as "Illustration
| 1: Orgmode Logo", then modify the entry for "en" as shown
| below.
|   (setq org-export-odt-category-strings
|       '(("en" "Table" "Illustration"
|          "Equation" "Equation")))
| You can customize this variable.
| This variable was introduced, or its default value was changed, in
| version 24.1 of Emacs.
