Is it possible to have in bibliography: english quotes in english references and french quotes in french references?

Thank you for your help!


  • Welcome to TeX.SX! It is easier to help you if you add a minimal working example that takes the form \documentclass{...}\usepackage{....}\begin{document}...\end{document}. This makes it much easier for people to troubleshoot your problem - and much more likely that they will! In this instance it would be helpful it you provided some references.

  • Please provide the MWE as suggested by @Andrew but also please provide some relevant bibliography entries.

  • Yes it is possible if you are using biblatex and if the bib contains the correct langid field. Jul 2, 2015 at 7:56

Here is a solution with biblatex and csquotes:

\usepackage[english, french]{babel}
\usepackage[autostyle, english=british, french=guillemets]{csquotes}
\usepackage[style=authoryear-comp, babel =other]{biblatex}


AUTHOR = "John Doe",
TITLE = "My article",
JOURNALTITLE = "A Cool Journal",
VOLUME = "16",
YEAR = "2005",
LANGID ="english"}
AUTHOR = "Jean Martin",
TITLE = "Mon Article à la noix",
JOURNALTITLE = "Un Journal à la coule",
VOLUME = "12",
YEAR = "2008",
LANGID ="french"}
