Changes in version 3.53 are described in: https://github.com/latex3/babel/wiki/What's-new-in-babel-3.53 Here is a summary: * Extended \setlocalecaption to allow .template (related to #111). * Allow access to some features in `ini` files even with `ldf` ones. * Tool to create ldf files with a (more or less) GUI (only GitHub). * Captions for Sinhala (thanks to Nisal D Bandara). * Fixes: - Not really a fix, but I started working on `picture` with bidi in lua. - Parenthesis sometimes mirrored at the end of math with bidi=basic.

babel – Multilingual support for Plain TeX or LaTeX
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 250 languages.
Many language styles work with pdfLaTeX, as well as with XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX, out of the box. A few even work with plain formats.
