The czech language module for babel makes the hyphen character - an active shorthand, which means that some uses of - break or don't work as expected. You can temporarily disable this special meaning of - with \shorthandoff, to keep the effect of this command local, we add \begingroup...\endgroup around the equation. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{...

The German module for babel makes " into a shorthand. This shorthand is implemented as a one-argument macro, because it's necessary to know what comes along and decide what to do: for instance "a will produce “ä”, "s yields “ß” and "| disables a ligature at the spot. In the case of "{...}, the entire contents inside the braces is the argument, which ...

You cannot put skips in the prebreak, postbreak and nobreak texts. You can have a kern, though. It won't participate on space stretching or shrinking in the line. Two methods, I'd prefer the first because it carries more semantic. \documentclass[10pt,twoside]{book} \usepackage[czech]{babel} \usepackage[papersize={85mm, 100mm},showframe]{geometry} \...

It is basically the same as here Document with custom bibliography driver compiling with babel 3.33 and biblatex 3.13a ; but not compiling with most recent package versions. Only that it is not only the hyphen but also the apostroph. Either disable all shorthands: \usepackage[slovak,shorthands=off]{babel} or patch the two offending chars away: \...

This is structurally the same issue as discussed in Document with custom bibliography driver compiling with babel 3.33 and biblatex 3.13a ; but not compiling with most recent package versions. But for Slovak we don't only need to think about the dash (-) but also about the apostrophe ('). \documentclass[12pt,a4paper,twoside,openright]{book} \usepackage[T1]{...

Add \usetikzlibrary{babel}, which is precisely made for this purpose. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[ngerman, english]{babel} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amsthm} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{extarrows} \usepackage{mathtools} \usepackage[all]{xy} \usepackage{tikz-cd} \usetikzlibrary{babel} %<-added \begin{document} ...

The \IfLanguageName takes three argumnents in the form of a language name true branch false branch In all 4 uses of \IfLanguage you are missing the false branch, add them and it works ok.

Just pass the languages as class options: \documentclass[french,brazilian,bidi=default]{abntex2} \babelprovide{arabic} \babelfont{rm}{FreeSerif} \begin{document} \languagename \foreignlanguage{arabic}{واحد} two \foreignlanguage{arabic}{ثلاثة} four \selectlanguage{french} \languagename \end{document} This should work with both xetex and luatex.

It is best to avoid legacy 8bit TeX encodings with xetex. You can use any OpenType font that has Cyrillic, I use Arial here: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage[american,russian]{babel} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont{Arial} \setsansfont{Arial} \begin{document} \begin{frame}{Здравствуйте} \begin{enumerate}[] \item<2->{\color{black}\small Б} \...

Add the TikZ library babel. \documentclass{scrbook} \usepackage[spanish, es-nodecimaldot, es-tabla]{babel} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{babel,calc} %<- added babel \usepackage{xparse} \tikzset{% Cote node/.style={ midway, fill=white, inner sep=1.5pt, outer sep=2pt }, Cote arrow/.style={ <->, ...

After having an idea about what's going on behind the scene I thought in a first place that "\relax{\bfseries Bold text for test} is a good approach. Since I need the approach in different scenarios I finally found "\bgroup{}\bfseries Bold text for test\egroup{}" which seems quite similar but has the advantage to solve my other issue as well.

In order to also change the entry in the table of contents from "Appendices" to "Anhänge", use \renewcommand{\appendixtocname}{Anhänge}. \documentclass{memoir} \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} \begin{document} \renewcommand{\appendixpagename}{Anhänge} \renewcommand{\appendixtocname}{Anhänge} \tableofcontents \chapter{Awesome chapter} \begin{appendices} \...
