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.

  • if you use \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} the entries usually translate to German automatically.

  • 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}

    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!

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

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