Is there a way to rename the Like/Unlike links in a custom list where rating has been enabled?

'Like' in our case would be misleading so we would like to have it show up as something like 'Confirm'.

You can use Client Side Rendering (CSR) for such requirements in SharePoint 2013.

Below is the code sample which replaces Like button by a image stored in Style Library:

SP.SOD.executeFunc("clienttemplates.js", "SPClientTemplates", function() {
      OnPreRender: function(ctx) {
          SP.UI.Reputation.LikesHelpers.ImageUrls.$W = "/Style Library/hand-like-32.png";
          SP.UI.Reputation.LikesHelpers.ImageUrls.$X = "/Style Library/hand-like-32.png";

You can find a full code and explanation at: Custom “Like”-Button in SharePoint List .
