Javier Be­zos López sub­mit­ted an up­date to the ba­bel pack­age. Ver­sion: 3.13 2017-09-18 Li­cense: lp­pl1.3 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Mul­tilin­gual sup­port for Plain TeX or LaTeX An­nounce­ment text:
What's new ---------- - Ex­ist­ing ldf files take pri­or­ity over de­clared op­tions with \De­clareOp­tion (ex­cept he­brew). - With a few ex­cep­tions, ini files have reached ver­sion 1.0. - New key `im­port' for \ba­bel­pro­vide, which also de­fines dates. This means ba­bel cur­rently pro­vides (to­tal or par­tial) sup­port for about 200 lan­guages. Many of them are us­able with XeTeX and LuaTeX. Cur­rent de­vel­op­ment is fo­cused on Uni­code en­gines, mainly font han­dling and bidi writ­ing.

ba­bel – Mul­tilin­gual sup­port for Plain or

This pack­age man­ages cul­tur­ally-de­ter­mined ty­po­graph­i­cal (and other) rules for a wide range of lan­guages. A doc­u­ment may se­lect a sin­gle lan­guage to be sup­ported, or it may se­lect sev­eral, in which case the doc­u­ment may switch from one lan­guage to an­other in a va­ri­ety of ways.

Ba­bel uses con­tributed con­fig­u­ra­tion files that pro­vide the de­tail of what has to be done for each lan­guage. In­cluded is also a set of ini files for about 200 lan­guages.

Many lan­guage styles work with pdf, as well as with XeLaTeX and Lua, out of the box. A few even work with plain for­mats.
