   LaTeX 
LaTeX is a wonderful typesetting system. It includes a powerful reference mechanism, usually used using BibTeX. BibTeX uses databases of bibliographic references with given bibliographic styles to produce high-quality bibliographies. Well-know bibliographic styles include plain.bst, abbrv.bst, and bibtopic.bst.
However, bibliographic styles only works for one unique language, most of the time English, and do not format correctly bibliographies in which references are in English and in French and in German... The multilingual bibliographic style allows to mix harmoniously references in different languages within the same bibliography.
With multilingual.bst, the language of a bibliographic reference is by default in English or can be explicitly stated using the language field of the reference. Thus, the reference is output using:
  • Appropriate keywords, such as et, dans, Úditeur in French instead of and, in, editor in English, respectively.
  • The appropriate typograpy using the Babel system.
The multilingual bibliographic style supports by default the english and french languages, other languages can be easily added.

However, the multilingual.bst bibliographic style does not work propertly in conjuction with other bibliographic styles that also modify the standard LaTeX bibliographic environment. In particular, with bibtopic.bst, it is necessary to split the required BibTeX databases into appropriate categories. Splitting BibTeX databases is a error-prone and painstaking operation.
Also, Bibex, BibTeX Extractor (previously known as WinBibEX), automates the extraction of bibliographic references from BibTeX databases using regular expressions. Using Bibex user interface, it is possible to define, to save, and to perform BibTeX references extraction tasks.

Finally, I created a Propser style to generate slides that looks like the PowerPoint "Vertical Line" style.
