# Style of quotation marks

This time I would like to ask you if you know how to change the style of signs on the left side and on the right side of a quotation. First quotation mark (that on the left) should be two commas at the bottom and the second (that on the right side) - two commas on the top on the right (schematically - bottom(,,)...top(,,)).

• In particular my answer to that question explains csquotes ability to adapt quotation marks to both nesting and linguistic context.

• OK, but what if someone has to use quotes with a chosen style ({,,}{"} - something like that), without the environment \begin{quotation} \end{quotation}? Dec 3 '15 at 1:06
• My answer below doesn't use the quotation environment and the answer I linked to doesn't depend on the quotation environment. The csquotes work there has nothing to do with that environment. It is just a result of the use of active quotation marks and csquotes. The answer I posted below doesn't use active marks, but only the macro \enquote{}. Normally, you use the style of marks appropriate to the language you are typesetting. It wouldn't make sense for me to choose, say, guillements if I'm typesetting English. You can specify a style if you need to, but usually auto is right.

You can use csquotes:

\documentclass[spanish,french,ngerman,american,british]{article}
\usepackage[autostyle]{csquotes}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{babel}
\begin{document}
\enquote{UK English} \selectlanguage{american} \enquote{US English} \selectlanguage{spanish} \enquote{Spanish} \selectlanguage{french} \enquote{Français} \selectlanguage{ngerman} \enquote{Deutsche}
\end{document}


Note that I have no idea if these are correct except for the first two. I'm just going by the package claiming they are!

# EDIT

Since you are typesetting Polish, things are not quite so straightforward as csquotes doesn't know what the marks should look like. However, I believe that the style is the same as for Dutch. If so, then a simple alias allows us to get the correct style for Polish:

\documentclass[polish]{article}
\usepackage[autostyle]{csquotes}
\DeclareQuoteAlias{dutch}{polish}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{babel}
\begin{document}
\enquote{Polish}
\end{document}


• Ha, ha, ha... funny situation :) So I'll tell you: Polish. I will check it. If it doesn't work properly , I will add a comment, else I will add a comment "thank you" or something longer :D. Dec 3 '15 at 1:13
• Polish isn't supported but we can add it. Which way should the commas point? Can you post an image of what it should look like? I know nothing about Polish!

• In Polish quotation marks look like „[text]” Dec 3 '15 at 1:21
• @cfr: For French, it is fine. For Polish, it's funny: I get the same result with DeclareQuoteAlias{croatian}{polish}. Dec 3 '15 at 1:28
• Yes, of course. :) Dec 3 '15 at 1:52

The simplest solution is to use two commas at the beginning and two apostrophes at the end.

,,Polish''


Latex will convert it correctly to „Polish”
