I want to have a citation but I my citation I have word 'and' which is english however paper I am currently working on has to be in a different language thus my question is how to change this 'and' to equivalent word in different languages?

enter image description here

My code is:




    \section{Words on a printed page}
        Some random words
    \subsection{Words }



And sample bibliography entry:

    title={Income inequality in the United States, 1913--1998},
    author={Piketty, Thomas and Saez, Emmanuel},
    journal={The Quarterly journal of economics},
    publisher={MIT Press}

Simple removal of the word "and" from bib files does not work.

  • Done, everything you have ina question body... First one :) Feb 11, 2019 at 18:39
  • I would argue that it is not a duplicate on macOS I cannot find file plainnat.bst either the name of this file is different or a location. Feb 11, 2019 at 19:03
  • Closed as a duplicate. You didn't specify your 'native language'.The accepted answer to the earlier question assumes that the native language is German; if yours is French, Spanish, Italian, Catalan, or whatever, just use the applicable conjunction instead of \&.

    You wrote, "I cannot find file plainnat.bst". In MacOS, do you know how to open a command window? If so, type kpsewhich plainnat.bst at a command prompt, and you'll find out where the file is located.
