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.
