I hope you're doing great. I have the following problem when I try to compile my document, using the spanish babel package.

\usepackage[spanish, es-tabla]{babel}

\tikzstyle{startstop}=[rectangle, rounded corners, minimum width=3cm, minimum height=1cm, text centered, text width=5cm, draw=black, fill=red!30]

\tikzstyle{io}=[trapezium, trapezium left angle=70, trapezium right angle=110, minimum width=3cm, minimum height=1cm, text centered, text width=3cm, draw=black, fill=blue!30]

\tikzstyle{process}=[rectangle, minimum width=3cm, minimum height=1cm, text centered, text width=5cm, draw=black, fill=orange!30]

\tikzstyle{decision}=[diamond, minimum width=3cm, minimum height=1cm, text centered, text width=4cm, draw=black, fill=green!30]


El término agua generalmente se refiere a la sustancia en su estado líquido, aunque la misma puede hallarse en su forma sólida llamada hielo, y en su forma gaseosa denominada vapor. Es una sustancia bastante común en el universo y el sistema solar, donde se encuentra principalmente en forma de vapor o de hielo. Es esencial para la supervivencia de todas las formas conocidas de vida. ¿Qué opina usted de ésto?


Some error messages I get when compiling are:

! Undefined control sequence. \StartBabelCommands
! LaTeX Error: Missing \begin{document}.See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.Type H <return> for immediate help.... \StartBabelCommands

! Undefined control sequence. \AddBabelHook

The log file is available here: http://share.udec.cl/server/php/files/mkuschel/compartir/hw_10.log

What should I do? Thanks in advance

  • This document works with TeXLive 2016 under Linux; there is only one error message saying that subcaption cannot be used with subfig. Maybe updating your TeX distribution helps ... – gernot Jan 13 '17 at 21:13
  • unrelated to your error but don't load both enumerate and enumitem package (they both try to redefine the enumerate environment) – David Carlisle Jan 13 '17 at 21:26
  • You have incongruences on your TeX systems: it seems you have updated spanish.ldf (2016/03/03 v5.0p) but not the core babel (2008/07/08 v3.8m), which is currently 2016/04/23 3.9r. Do a thorough update to your MiKTeX. – egreg Jan 13 '17 at 22:27
  • I solved the problem using the "Package Manager" and then downloaded the respective babel package. Thanks for all – mkuschel Jan 14 '17 at 3:12

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because as it is solved by updating the packages. – Andrew Swann May 15 '18 at 7:49
