Chapter 9. LaTeX in a Multilingual Environment

Chapter 9. LaTeX in a Multilingual Environment

This chapter starts with a short introduction to the technical problems that must be solved if you want to use (La)TeX with a non-English language. Most of the remaining part of the chapter discusses the babel system, which provides a convenient way of generating documents in different languages. We look in particular how we can typeset documents in French, German, Russian, Greek, and Hebrew, as the typesetting of those languages illustrates various aspects of the things one has to deal with in a non-English environment. Section 9.5 explains the structure of babel’s language definition files for the various language options. Finally, we say a few words about how to handle other languages, such as Arabic and Chinese, that are not supported by babel.
