bibtex – Process bibliographies (bib files) for or other formats

allows the user to store his citation data in generic form, while printing citations in a document in the form specified by a style, to be specified in the document itself (one often needs a citation-style package, such as natbib, as well).

knows nothing about Unicode sorting algorithms or scripts, although it will pass on whatever bytes it reads. Its descendant bibtexu does support Unicode, via the ICU library. The older alternative bibtex8 supports 8-bit character sets.

Another Unicode-aware alternative is the (independently developed) biber program, used with the Bib package to typeset its output.
