I have problems with the \finalnamedelim when I use the babel package.

As you can see in this example I only get ; separator without the babel package.

So, what is the right way in this case?


    Title                    = {Conjunctival squamous cell neoplasia: the Liverpool Ocular Oncology Centre experience},
    Author                   = {Kenawy, N. and Garrick, A. and Heimann, H. and Coupland, SE. and Damato, BE.},
    Journal                  = {Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol},
    Year                     = {2015},
    Pages                    = {43--50},
    Volume                   = {253},

    Title                    = {Kaposi sarcoma in unusual locations},
    Author                   = {Pantanowitz, L. and Dezube, BJ.},
    Journal                  = {BMC Cancer},
    Year                     = {2008},
    Pages                    = {1--9},
    Volume                   = {8},









spanish.lbx contains some fancy code for a 'smart and' to properly typeset the 'and' in Spanish. If you want to get around that you will need


Then you can just do


as you intended to.

Maybe you also want


if you intend to change \finallistdelim.
