If you want to change Add to Cart to See Options on product category (list page), You need to edit following file:


on list.phtml, You can check product type i.e

$_product->getTypeId();//it will give product type simple,configurable 

Based on product type you can change Add to cart text like:

<?php if($_product->getTypeId()=='configurable')  { ?>
<a class="product-button"
   href="<?= /* @escapeNotVerified */ $_product->getProductUrl() ?>">
    <?= $block->escapeHtml(__('See Options')) ?>
<?php } else { ?>
    <button type="submit"
            title="<?= $block->escapeHtml(__('Add to Cart')) ?>"
            class="action tocart primary">
        <span><?= /* @escapeNotVerified */ __('Add to Cart') ?></span>
<?php } ?> 

Above code will change text only for configurable product and add a link to product view page.

Note: You need to remove original Add to cart button and add code given in solution.

I assume you find the list file from which the list of product code is there. So, just need to check in add to cart button with this code.

if($product->getTypeId() == \Magento\ConfigurableProduct\Model\Product\Type\Configurable::TYPE_CODE)    
     echo "product is configurable";

You just need to put add to cart label code in between the if condition and your work will be done.
