Javier Be­zos López sub­mit­ted an up­date to the ba­bel pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 3.15 2017-11-03 Li­cense type: lp­pl1.3 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Mul­tilin­gual sup­port for Plain TeX or LaTeX An­nounce­ment text:
New === New com­mand \ba­bel­font (in Uni­code en­gines) to de­fine lan­guage/script de­pen­dent fonts. Re­lated to it, new keys (script, lan­guage) in \ba­bel­pro­vide. A com­mon mis­take is to leave some space(s) in \cap­tions<lang>, which go to the doc­u­ment. Now ba­bel re­moves them. A cou­ple of fixes: - Er­ror with hy­phen­rules in \ba­bel­pro­vide in some cases. - \hy­phen­rules doesn't set \lan­gua­ge­name any more (which was against the doc­u­mented be­hav­ior).
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/re­quired/ba­bel/base More in­for­ma­tion is at https://www.ctan.org/pkg/ba­bel

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.
