I need to change / into , (comma followed by the space) in backreferences in my bibliography.

This is my MWE:

To change the delimiter only for the pageref list, use

\makeatletter
\DeclareListFormat{pageref}{%
\ifnumless{\abx@pagerefstyle}{0}
{\usebibmacro{list:plain}%
\ifhyperref
{#1}}
{\ifnumequal{\value{listcount}}{1}
{\usebibmacro{pageref:init}}
{}%
\usebibmacro{pageref:comp}{#1}%
\ifnumequal{\value{listcount}}{\value{liststop}}
{\usebibmacro{pageref:dump}}
{}}}
\makeatother


This is a copy of the original definition from biblatex.def with \renewcommand*{\multilistdelim}{\addcomma\addspace}% added.

You can use

\renewcommand*{\multilistdelim}{\addcomma\addspace}


I would also advise you to use utf8 everywhere, to input accents directly, to get the endash right, and to use biber instead of bibtex.

• I thought this is solution but once I implemented it in my main file I realised that this is changing something else that it shouldn't. In the case where I have more than one Address entries (more than one cities) this changes first entry to comma and the other ones are left with slash. I changed my MWE above so that you can test it and see what I mean. It produces Berlin, New York/Freiburgin this case instead Berlin, New York, Freiburg – eklisiarh Dec 16 '17 at 7:51
• Add \renewcommand*{\finallistdelim}{\addcomma\addspace} if you want the commas in the address. If you want slashes you need a solution like that from @moeve and change one of the list formats to use special formatting. – Ulrike Fischer Dec 16 '17 at 10:18
• Thank you. This is a great answer for those who want to change both address and list formats! – eklisiarh Dec 16 '17 at 13:08
