How the edit button in a form view can be renamed for a specific model only and not be altered for the other model?

i.e: When opening the form view of a res.partner, change the edit label to "Edit the contact information". And still have the label "Edit" for the other models.

The template for that button is in web/static/src/xml/base.xml

You will have to create a new module that inherits the FormView buttons template and adds more code to it so that it does what you need it to do.

The template name is t-name="FormView.buttons"
