Changing 'Topic' text under text content

There has been a little concern from our support team that the use of the term ‘Topic’ instead of ‘Post’ may cause some confusion for our users who have become accustomed to seeing the term ‘Post’ on our last community.

I see that I could change all reference to the word ‘Topic’ under the Text Content section of the admin section.

My question is how safe is this to do and would this cause any strange anomalies throughout the rest of the our community.

Would it possibly be better to just reeducate our users towards the different terms used in the new community?

Thanks in advance

Changing text should not cause any technical issues.

I think that would be a better long-term strategy.
