# date in titlepage

So I want to create a titlepage for my document and I would like to print the last date of compilation on it but I can't seem to be able to. I've found people with similar problem but somehow haven't been able to make the solutions work for me.

here is my code

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{titlepage}
\begin{center}
\vspace*{1cm}

\Huge
\textbf{Thesis Title}

\vspace{0.5cm}
\LARGE
Thesis Subtitle

\vspace{1.5cm}

\textbf{Author Name}

\vfill

A thesis presented for the degree of\\
Doctor of Philosophy

\vspace{0.8cm}

\Large
Department Name\\
University Name\\
Country\\
\date

\end{center}
\end{titlepage}
\end{document}


I have tried to use the titling package but it prints the date in english and I want it in french.

• Use \today, not \date – egreg Apr 26 '14 at 20:07

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[french]{babel}
...
\today % date in French


try that just before your begin document

• Hi thanks, I actually already have babel in place but it doesn't seem to work with the titling package – ortholle Apr 26 '14 at 20:11
