# Citations in small caps using Biblatex in french (APA style)

I have a small issue while using Biblatex with the APA style in French. My in-text citations are in small caps and I would like to have them written normally. This issue doesn't happen when I write in English.

Can someone help me?

Here is a small example:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[french]{babel}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[backend=biber,style=apa]{biblatex}
\DeclareLanguageMapping{french}{french-apa}
\DeclareCaseLangs{french}
\begin{document}

Cette référence: \textcite{Kline2016} s'affiche en majuscules.

\end{document}


This will produce "Cette référence: KLINE (2016) s'affiche en majuscules" and I would like to have "Cette référence: Kline (2016) s'affiche en majuscules".

Thanks!

• @moewe: Not sure if I understand well what you suggestion does, but doesn't it affect also the names in the references section? May 29 '16 at 18:48
• @Bernard Yes that is true. I didn't think the OP would want to change the behaviour in citations only. In that case \AtEveryCite{\restorecommand\mkbibnamefamily} would be more appropriate. May 30 '16 at 6:16
• Do you want to get rid of small caps in citations only, or do you want them gone in the bibliography as well? May 30 '16 at 6:17
