I just have a little question about BibDesk.

I do have a list of books which should appear in the bibliography. Some of them have more than one authors. If there are e.g. three authors it is written like this: M. Mashler, E. Solan and S. Zamir. Because I am German-speaking I want to change the "and" in a "und". Is there a possibility to fix this? I hope someone may help me.

Thank you for your help.

Ok sorry, I see it would be easier if you have an example :-).

\documentclass[a4paper, fontsize=11pt, open = any]{scrbook}
\usepackage{geometry} 
\geometry{a4paper, top=25mm, left=25mm, right=25mm, bottom=25mm, footskip=10mm} 

\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}  
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}         
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}   

\begin{document}

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Literaturverzeichnis}
\nocite{*}
\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{lit}

\end{document}

In BibDesk I defined the book as you can see on the picture below:

Then Latex give me this:

My goal is it to write the source as I mentioned it in red.

I hope you see what I mean. Otherwise I can explain it a bit better ;-)

Thank you for your help!!

  • You have to use "and" in the bibtex file. If you want "und" in your document you have to use a localized bibliography style. – DG' Jul 15 '16 at 8:18
  • if you use \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} the entries usually translate to German automatically. – naphaneal Jul 15 '16 at 15:44
  • @naphaneal unfortunately it does not work : / – hpz1719 Jul 15 '16 at 16:55
  • see if there is a change, when you use babelbib-package and add the language-field in the bib entries. line added in bib-entry:language={ngerman} – naphaneal Jul 15 '16 at 18:25

    Why do you not show us a short, compilable code resulting in your problem. Then we need not to guess, and with your rep you should know, what an MWE is ... Just help us to help you! – Mensch Jul 15 '16 at 19:16

Use the style deplain.bst from http://comedy.dante.de/~herbert/Bibliography/german/

Use babelbib and bibliography style babplain-lf or babplain-lf:

\documentclass[a4paper, fontsize=11pt, open = any,bibliography=totoc]{scrbook}
\usepackage{geometry} 
\geometry{a4paper, top=25mm, left=25mm, right=25mm, bottom=25mm, footskip=10mm} 

\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}  
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}         
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}   
\usepackage{babelbib}

\begin{filecontents*}{lit.bib}
@article { Test,
  title={Game Theory},
  publisher={Cambridge University Press},
  year={2013},
  author={Maschier, Michael and Solan, Eilon and Zamier, Shmuel},
}
\end{filecontents*}

\begin{document}

\nocite{*}
\bibliographystyle{babplain-lf}% or babplain-fl
\bibliography{lit}

\end{document}

bibplain-lf

\documentclass[a4paper, fontsize=11pt, open = any,bibliography=totoc]{scrbook}
\usepackage{geometry} 
\geometry{a4paper, top=25mm, left=25mm, right=25mm, bottom=25mm, footskip=10mm} 

\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}  
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}         
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}   
\usepackage{babelbib}

\begin{filecontents*}{lit.bib}
@article { Test,
  title={Game Theory},
  publisher={Cambridge University Press},
  year={2013},
  author={Maschier, Michael and Solan, Eilon and Zamier, Shmuel},
}
\end{filecontents*}

\begin{document}

\nocite{*}
\bibliographystyle{babplain-fl}% or babplain-lf
\bibliography{lit}

\end{document}

babplain-lf

The language of and will depend on either language entry in the bib file or current language selected with babel.

Much better would be to switch to biblatex:

\documentclass[a4paper, fontsize=11pt, open = any,bibliography=totoc]{scrbook}
\usepackage{geometry} 
\geometry{a4paper, top=25mm, left=25mm, right=25mm, bottom=25mm, footskip=10mm} 

\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}  
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}         
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{csquotes}   
\usepackage[backend=biber]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{lit.bib}

\begin{filecontents*}{lit.bib}
@article { Test,
  title={Game Theory},
  publisher={Cambridge University Press},
  year={2013},
  author={Maschier, Michael and Solan, Eilon and Zamier, Shmuel},
}
\end{filecontents*}

\begin{document}

\nocite{*}
\printbibliography

\end{document}

biblatex
