CTAN update: babel
What's new ~~~~~~~~~~ - With LuaTeX, spaces are not ignored after shorthands and closing braces can follow them. - \textlatin and friends are deprecated. For the logos (see below) a new macro is used if necessary (\ensureascii), so \textlatin is not used in the core any more. - \babelensure can be used to wrap caption texts with \foreignlanguage, as well as to enforce an encoding. - \babeltags is just for syntactical sugar, and defines macros with short names to switch the language (eg, \textdeu and \deu). - Bug fixed -- The logos \TeX and \LaTeX were typeset in a wrong font in some cases. Now if a non-ASCII font is not loaded they are not redefined at all. - Partial compatibility with languages named as \lang@ instead of \l@ (plain etex/xetex/luatex). - Bug fixed -- \bbl at allowhyphens is now ignored in vertical mode. - Bug fixed -- Loops with \@for failed in Plain. - Bug fixed -- A few codes in xetex where wrong when loading patterns. - Bug fixed -- With strings=encoded captions were left unchanged in \MakeUppercase/\MakeLowercase.

babel – Multilingual support for Plain TeX or LaTeX
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 pdfLaTeX, as well as with XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX, out of the box. A few even work with plain formats.
