I've written a latex document with bibliography references in spanish and english. I wanted to know if there is way to cite in both languages. I mean, I wanted cites like:

"Author1 and Author2 (year1)" and

"Author3 y Author4 (year2)"

in the same document.

The code below show what I've done, it just produces references in english.



\lhead{\textsc{Bibliograf\'ia}} % Change the page header to say "Bibliografía"
\bibliographystyle{dcu} % Use the "dcu" BibTeX style for formatting the Bibliography
\bibliography{Bibliography.bib} % The references (bibliography) information are stored in the file named "Bibliography.bib"

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! I'm not sure if bibtexwith natbib let you achieve what you request easily, but biblatexcan do it. Since you use babelyou can do it easily: Now, my doubt is if you want to cite the same reference twice: once in Spanish and the other in English or simply cite references in Spanish or English.

  • Hi Aradnix, I wanted to cite once per language. Do you have any suggestion?

  • Well, my suggestion is move to biblatex. You can use aliases for the bibtex and natbib options and use the babel language options for cite correctly in both languages.

The template is obsolete. An updated version can be found on latextemplates.com. It uses the new features of package biblatex, where it is very easy to do what you want.
