# greek in latex-template thesis

I am using TexMaker and I have just found a beautiful template for my thesis http://www.latextemplates.com/template/masters-doctoral-thesis

I have the problem that i can't write greeks.

I have tried to add the following commands

\usepackage[english,greek]{babel} and \usepackage[iso-8859-7]{inputenc}

but it returns errors.

any advice?

## 1 Answer

The following

\usepackage[greek,english]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}


should work.

• nice,thanks!. i have added these lines in main.tex and it works. But if i add them in Thesis.cls, it doesn't work. For example i changed the line \authors{John \textsc{Smith}} to \authors{\selectlanguage{greek} Νίκος} and it returns errors. How could i write greeks in Thesis.cls file? – Dimitris Klinos May 18 '13 at 19:14
• @DimitrisKlinos Author inside *.cls? What a horrible solution! But you can freely change the appearance of a title page in your thesis. This seems to be the only place where the author is needed. – Przemysław Scherwentke May 18 '13 at 23:24
