This package is the "multiscript" version of the biblatex package. It is intended to be backwards-compatible with the standard biblatex package and includes significantly enhanced functionality to support multiple scripts/languages of bibliography data fields and support for automatically switching babel/polyglossia languages for different fieldvariants.

biblatex-ms – Sophisticated Bibliographies in (multiscript version)

This package is the "multiscript" version of the Bib package intended to solve the issues faced by those wishing to create multiligual bibliographies. It is intended to be backwards-compatible with the standard Bib package and includes significantly enhanced optional functionality:

  • Fields in data files can have different form/language alternates in the same entry
  • Options to select/print a specific alternate are generally available
  • babel/polyglossia language switching is done automatically based on the language associated with a field

The intention is that this version will eventually replace standard Bib and is being released as an independent package to allow for wider testing and feedback. It can be installed in parallel with standard Bib and the package name is biblatex-ms. It requires the use of the multiscript version of biber (biber-ms).
