TeX - LaTeX Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In a document set up as shown in the question Greek pdf bookmarks, the interesting bits are:

\documentclass[greek,english]{scrbook}
\usepackage[LGRx,T1]{fontenc} % define LGR and T1 encodings
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} % standard UTF-8 input encoding
\usepackage[greek,english]{babel}
\usepackage[unicode]{hyperref}

The minitoc package is used to present mini-ToCs on a per-chapter basis.

\usepackage[k-loose]{minitoc} % Mini-ToCs with loose line spacing
\mtcsettitle{minitoc}{} % for empty title
\mtcsetrules{minitoc}{off} % turn off rules before and after the minitoc's
\mtcsetpagenumbers{minitoc}{off} % turn off page numbering in minitoc's

All but one section titles are Greek. The only English section, named Thumb index and correctly (?) defined in English using \selectlanguage{english}, appears with Greek letters in the mini-ToC as Τηυμβ-ινδεξ.

Note the section title appears correctly in the (normal) Table of Contents!

How should be minitoc instructed to respect the language setting?

Please, try building a minimal example. –  egreg Apr 25 '12 at 21:38
    
Right, working on it... –  Nikos Alexandris Apr 25 '12 at 22:19
    
What is LGRx encoding? I couldn't find it on CTAN. –  Stephan Lehmke Apr 26 '12 at 6:02
    
@Stephan: You can find the LGRx files here: milde.users.sourceforge.net/LGR –  Ulrike Fischer Apr 26 '12 at 8:05
    
I am trying to produce a MWE from a LyX document. I have some problems with minitoc under pure LaTeX. Stephan's proposition (1st Answer, below) works fine. I'll try to provide a LaTeX-MWE later... –  Nikos Alexandris Apr 26 '12 at 10:29

Explicit usage of \selectlanguage is seldom needed. The definition you give of \textgreek is useless, as Greek is the default language. It's conversely needed a similar trick for the English text.

Inputting σ and ς directly is obviously possible.

It works, superb :D –  Nikos Alexandris May 4 '12 at 10:17
    
What exactly instructs the command \addto\extrasenglish{\def\encodingdefault{T1}\fontencoding{T1}\selectfont}? –  Nikos Alexandris May 10 '12 at 18:09
    
@NikosAlexandris It's just the correspondent instruction to your \greektext so that switching to English will surely change the font encoding. –  egreg May 10 '12 at 18:48

How did you define the english section?

The following

\section{\texorpdfstring{\selectlanguage{english}Thumb index}{Thumb index}}

seems to work here.

I only used \selectlanguage{english}% \section{Thumb-index}. Your code works fine though! –  Nikos Alexandris Apr 26 '12 at 10:27
    
Just to be very clear: in the above comment, "my" simple \section definition, does not cause any problems in the section title itself, nor in the pdf bookmarks. Just in the minitoc. –  Nikos Alexandris Apr 26 '12 at 10:37

@NikosAlexandris This is understandable. For the document itself, changing language before \section is enough. The bookmark is handeled by the unicode option. But the toc entry gets scrambled by inputenc because in LGR encoding, the greek characters are in the same place as usually the latin ones and the language selection is not preserved. –  Stephan Lehmke Apr 26 '12 at 12:32

Edit freely if you think the above code does not need to be that "complicated" as an answer to the initial question. –  Nikos Alexandris May 2 '12 at 23:01
    
Why are you using \textsigma and \textvarsigma? If I input the characters σ and ς directly, I get what's expected. –  egreg May 3 '12 at 8:31
    
Please, add this to your original question. –  egreg May 3 '12 at 14:12
    
@egreg Do you get the characters σ and ς correctly displayed in the pdf bookmarks as well? I don't expect so (after all I've read and been advised). If otherwise, it would save a lot of handwork :-) –  Nikos Alexandris May 4 '12 at 9:42
    
Look at the bookmark for section 1.2 with my code. I see "∆οµή σελίδας" –  egreg May 4 '12 at 9:52
