5.4.1.2 Style Files for Different Languages

AUCTeX supports style files for several languages. Each style file may modify AUCTeX to better support the language, and will run a language specific hook that will allow you to for example change ispell dictionary, or run code to change the keyboard remapping. The following will for example choose a Danish dictionary for documents including ‘\usepackage[danish]{babel}’. This requires parsing to be enabled, see Parsing Files.

 
(add-hook 'TeX-language-dk-hook
	  (lambda () (ispell-change-dictionary "danish")))

The following style files are recognized:

bulgarian

Runs style hook TeX-language-bg-hook. Gives ‘"’ word syntax, makes the <"> key insert a literal ‘"’. Typing <"> twice will insert insert ‘"`’ or ‘"'’ depending on context. Typing <-> twice will insert ‘"=’, three times ‘--’.

czech

Runs style hook TeX-language-cz-hook. Pressing <"> will insert ‘\uv{’ and ‘}’ depending on context.

danish

Runs style hook TeX-language-dk-hook. Pressing <"> will insert ‘"`’ and ‘"'’ depending on context. Typing <-> twice will insert ‘"=’, i.e. a hyphen string allowing hyphenation in the composing words.

dutch

Runs style hook TeX-language-nl-hook.

german
ngerman

Runs style hook TeX-language-de-hook. Gives ‘"’ word syntax, makes the <"> key insert a literal ‘"’. Pressing the key twice will give you opening or closing German quotes (‘"`’ or ‘"'’). Typing <-> twice will insert ‘"=’, three times ‘--’.

frenchb
francais

Runs style hook TeX-language-fr-hook. Pressing <"> will insert ‘\\og’ and ‘\\fg’ depending on context. Note that the language name for customizing TeX-quote-language-alist is ‘french’.

Replacement of language-specific hyphen strings like ‘"=’ with dashes does not require to type <-> three times in a row. You can put point after the hypen string anytime and trigger the replacement by typing <->.

In case you are not satisfied with the suggested behavior of quote and hyphen insertion you can change it by customizing the variables TeX-quote-language-alist and LaTeX-babel-hyphen-language-alist respectively.

User Option: TeX-quote-language-alist

Used for overriding the default language-specific quote insertion behavior. This is an alist where each element is a list consisting of four items. The first item is the name of the language in concern as a string. See the list of supported languages above. The second item is the opening quotation mark. The third item is the closing quotation mark. Opening and closing quotation marks can be specified directly as strings or as functions returning a string. The fourth item is a boolean controlling quote insertion. It should be non-nil if if the special quotes should only be used after inserting a literal ‘"’ character first, i.e. on second key press.

User Option: LaTeX-babel-hyphen-language-alist

Used for overriding the behavior of hyphen insertion for specific languages. Every element in this alist is a list of three items. The first item should specify the affected language as a string. The second item denotes the hyphen string to be used as a string. The third item, a boolean, controls the behavior of hyphen insertion and should be non-nil if the special hyphen should be inserted after inserting a literal ‘-’ character, i.e. on second key press.

The defaults of hyphen insertion are defined by the variables LaTeX-babel-hyphen and LaTeX-babel-hyphen-after-hyphen respectively.

User Option: LaTeX-babel-hyphen

String to be used when typing <->. This usually is a hyphen alternative or hyphenation aid provided by ‘babel’ and the related language style files, like ‘"=’, ‘"~’ or ‘"-’.

Set it to an empty string or nil in order to disable language-specific hyphen insertion.

User Option: LaTeX-babel-hyphen-after-hyphen

Control insertion of hyphen strings. If non-nil insert normal hyphen on first key press and swap it with the language-specific hyphen string specified in the variable LaTeX-babel-hyphen on second key press. If nil do it the other way round.
