I'd like to have my headers like Theorem, Definition etc. in a beamer presentation translated to Polish. After skimming through the last pages of beamer user guide, I tried \usepackage[polish]{translator}, but it resulted in "Option clash for package translator". Any ideas what I can do?

You need to put your language option amongst the class options where both babel and the translator package (implicitly loaded by beamer) can see it:



An alternative for your implicit question "How do I pass options to a package that I don't load myself" is to use \PassOptionsToPackage:

  • Thanks! And what if I don't want to use babel?

  • OK, the \PassOptionsToPackage worked without babel. Incidentally, there was another error: there's a bug in the Polish dictionary for translator; I'll email the maintainer.

  • And just [polish]{beamer} works even better. Thanks again!
