9.3. User commands provided by language options

This section gives a general overview of the features typically offered by the various language options. It includes translations of language-dependent strings and a survey of typical shorthands intended to ease language-specific document content or to solve language-specific typesetting requirements. Some language options define additional commands to produce special date formats or numbers in a certain style. Also discussed are layout modifications as undertaken for French and Hebrew as well as the interfaces for dealing with different scripts (e.g., Latin and Cyrillic) in the same document.

9.3.1. Translations

As discussed earlier, babel provides translations for document element names that LaTeX uses in its document classes. The English versions of these strings are shown in Table 9.2 on page 547. Table 9.3 on page 551 shows the translations for a number of languages, some of them not using the normal Latin script.
