Javier Bezos López submitted an update to the babel package. Version: 3.46 License: lppl1.3 Summary description: Multilingual support for Plain TeX or LaTeX Announcement text:
Changes in version 3.46 are described in: https://github.com/latex3/babel/wiki/What's-new-in-babel-3.46 Here is a summary: - \BabelEnsureInfo now loads the basic data for the requested languages immediately (formerly it was done at the end of the preamble). - Fixes: - Getting rid of the hyphen in XeTeX was not working as expected. A new procedure has been devised. - tag.bcp47 now contains what its name promises, instead of just the language subtag (#70). - Locale info was not loaded if the name had uppercase letters in some OSs (#80). - The [..|..] syntax in ini dates didn't recognize 'digits'.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/babel The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/required/babel/base/

babel – Multilingual support for Plain or

This package manages culturally-determined typographical (and other) rules for a wide range of languages. A document may select a single language to be supported, or it may select several, in which case the document may switch from one language to another in a variety of ways.

Babel uses contributed configuration files that provide the detail of what has to be done for each language. Included is also a set of ini files for about 200 languages.

Many language styles work with pdf, as well as with XeLaTeX and Lua, out of the box. A few even work with plain formats.
