# Using the glossaries package in other languages.

I have just started using the glossaries package, and as I'm writing my documents in icelandic I run into a certain problem. The glossaries package assumes the words are in two forms, singular or plural, but for icelandic the same word can easily take 10 forms.

I guess there are some people here writing in other languages who may have a good solution for this (I tried to search, but this package gets a little too technical for me, beyond the standard options of the package).

What I'm looking for is preferably a way to put in what form should be presented in the main text, maybe \gls[word presented in text]{glossaryentry} or something similar.

I think you're looking for the \glsdisp command.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{glossaries}
\makeglossary
\newglossaryentry{minex}{name={minimal example},description={bla}}

\begin{document}

How to create a \glsdisp{minex}{special minimal example} \dots

\printglossary

\end{document}

You can also use \glslink insted of \glsdisp to make it an hyperlink. –  fabikw Jan 24 '11 at 19:14
