I need to cite a document that is in other language than my work. I have found a webpage http://www.cs.arizona.edu/~collberg/Teaching/07.231/BibTeX/bibtex.html that mentions language field but there is no information how is the language specified.

Does anybody know what are permitted values?

Load package babel and use the in babel defined language name, for example english, german for German with old writing rules, ngerman for new writing rules.

Add language = {english}, for each bib file entry.
