I use biblatex with apa style to produce my bibliography. With LibreOffice get this result:

with biblatex I get:

As you can see, the result is without comma.

What can I do to get rid with this problem?

    \finalandcomma is language dependant, your main language is french, and in french imho there is no comma there. (I also don't get an & but et.) – Ulrike Fischer Oct 4 '16 at 17:18
  • Thank you,but if I want the body in french and the bibliography in english(american) what can I do ? – Haouam Oct 4 '16 at 18:08
  • Try \selectlanguage{american} before the bibliographie. You will need also a \DeclareLanguageMapping for american. – Ulrike Fischer Oct 4 '16 at 18:45
  • @UlrikeFischer Do you want to type up an answer here, so we can wrap this up? – moewe Oct 31 '16 at 17:34
