Get a bibliography in French using BibTeX

Postby DCM » Fri Dec 07, 2018 5:22 pm

Hi all,

I am using BibTeX for the bibliography of a document that I write in French. I want the bibliography to be in French not in English. Can someone help me!!!!

Thanks.

Below you can see my preamble.

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper]{report}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{mathpazo}
\usepackage[french]{babel}
\usepackage[authoryear, sectionbib]{natbib}
\usepackage{chapterbib}

You need a bibliographystyle in french. A big drawback of the old BibTeX system is the hardcoding of strings.

You may want to take a look at the more modern system of biblatex with biber. That combination is aware of the document language and translates strings accordingly.

The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
