List of locale templates

Babel provides currently more than 300 ini files for about 250 languages, which are listed in the manual. In addition, a set of about 450 template files, with a minimal content, are available in this respository.

Here is the list of languages with a minimal ini + tex template. A few directories contain several ini files: for the ‘likely’ script as provided by the Unicode CLDR, and for other scripts. An example is Mundari: unr with the Bengali script, and unr-Deva with Devanagari.

You can use them to define a new locale just by filling (and fixing if necessary) the empty fields of the required locale, taking some existing one as a model. Feel free to ask for help, and to make feature requests if your language needs specific layout, typographical or cultural conventions.

You can find them here.
