# Replacing “and” by “og” and “In”by “I” in references and bibliograpy using natbib

Since I am writing in norwegian, I would like to chang the two words "and" and "in" into norwegian. "And" appears both in references in the text and in the bibliography, while "in" appears in the bibliography.

My document:

\documentclass[a4paper, norsk, 12pt]{article}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage [norsk] {babel}
\usepackage[round, longnamesfirst]{natbib}

\begin{document}

If I have more than one author, the reference would be a list of alle the authors the first time i cite it \citep{fysdid}.
The problem is that I can not have the word ''and'' in the reference when I am writing i norwegian. I would like to replace it by ''og''.

\renewcommand{\refname}{Litteratur}
\bibliography{litteratur}
\bibliographystyle{abbrvnat}

\end{document}


the bibtex-file:

@book{fysdid,
title= {Fysikkdidaktikk},
author= {Carl Angell and Berit Bungum and Ellen K. Henriksen and Stein Dankert Kolstø and Jonas Persson and Reidun Renstrøm},
year= {2011},
publisher={Manusutkast},
}


The result:

If I have more than one author, the reference would be a list of alle the
authors the rst time i cite it (Angell, Bungum, Henriksen, Kolst, Persson,
and Renstrm, 2011). The problem is that I can not have the word "and"
in the reference when I am writing i norwegian. I would like to replace it by
"og".

Did you tried the babel package with your language? It might be best to add a minimal working example (MWE) which shows what you have so far. –  Martin Scharrer May 12 '11 at 9:58

You can create a Norwegian compatible BibTeX style with makebst, but there's an easier way. Make a copy of abbrvnat.bst calling it abbrvnat-no.bst. In this file do a search of the strings " and " and change them into " og "; something similar must be done with in, I presume. Then call this new style with the \bibliographystyle command.
