I am trying to install a language package in Latex not officialy included in TeX. I have downloaded the .LDF file and the hyphenation rules, but have no idea how to install them. I am using MixTex.

    Can you please more specific? For what package or program? – Mensch Aug 24 '15 at 18:45
  • Also, which language is it? – Arthur Reutenauer Aug 25 '15 at 3:16

Under MiKTeX, I would create a TeXMF-local directory (unless it already exists — MiKTeX does not create one by default), add it to the list of TeX roots (MiKTeX Szettings, Roots tab), then create a TeXMF-local\tex\latex\babel-mylanguage chain of directories in it, in which I would put mylanguage.ldf. If there is any documentation, I would put it in TeXMF-local\doc\latex\babel-mylanguage.

There would remain to update the FNDB, with MKTeX Options.
