A nice way to rename all folders is to (temporarily) change Gnome's language to EN, restart, and upon next login you should automatically be asked if your standard folder should be changed. If, for some reason that does not happen, you will have to run the program: xdg-user-dirs-gtk-update.

The folders are defined in this file: ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs. (To edit it manually: gedit ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs).

For more info: man user-dirs.dirs.
