I'm using JabRef and I want to add a field for the language.
Do you have any idea how to do it?

I'm trying to make a bibliography with English and Hebrew references, and I want to make a field for any reference that I can write the language of it...

Actually I'm trying to what I asking here: I do I divide the bibliography in LyX for Hebrew and English? but all the answers I found put a label of language. So I was wondering how to do it via JabRef (and not manually at the file itself).

  • What is the language? Could you be more detailed, please, in your question? – Sebastiano Aug 13 '18 at 10:30
  • Could you please specify which type of entry you are aiming at? – TeXnician Aug 13 '18 at 10:46

  • @TeXnician I hope it's much clear now... – heblyx Aug 13 '18 at 11:00
  • From what I recall, JabRef allows you to put custom information in the bibliography entries. The issue is that your bibliography style won't load them. JabRef is not responsible for what appears on the document. It just make editing the bibliography database easier. What appears on the doc is up to bibtex or biblatex and your bibliography style in use. – phollox Aug 13 '18 at 11:56

If you use BibLaTeX (File > Database properties), the built-in entry types have a language field. For BibTeX you can edit the entry types yourself under Options > Customize entry types and add the language field (see also the JabRef help about this topic).
