isodate – Tune the output format of dates according to language

This package provides ten output formats of the commands \today, \printdate, \printda, and \daterange (partly language dependent).

Formats available are: ISO (yyyy-mm-dd), numeric (e.g. dd.\,mm.~yyyy), short (e.g. dd.\,mm.\,yy), (yyyy/mm/dd), original (e.g. dd. mmm yyyy), short original (e.g. dd. mmm yy), as well as numerical formats with Roman numerals for the month.

The commands \printdate and \printda print any date. The command \daterange prints a date range and leaves out unnecessary year or month entries.

This package supports German (old and new rules), Austrian, US English, British English, French, Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian.
