How can the language for citation (escpecially month of magazines) be set to English, if the Computer and Word run with German language?
To localise Mendeley Desktop to your location, please try the following:
1.- Close Mendeley Desktop
2.- Download and save the file from https://www.dropbox.com/s/02iucw5nkjivl6f/loadlocale.zip to C:\Program Files\Mendeley
3.- Edit the file C:\Program Files\Mendeley
Desktop\citeproc-js\mendeley.js and change “return locale[”en-US"];"
to one of these locales, depending on which language you need:
4. Save the file, and use Mendeley as normal. If you return to writing papers in English, you will need to repeat step 3 as above, and change the locale to “en-US”
It crashes. I tried this method with es-ES locale and every time I click at "Insert Citation" button in Word plugin Mendeley Desktop crashes, closes and asks me if I want to send the error report.
Semi-solved. I have redownloaded loadlocale.js and now it doesn't crashes but nothing changes either. I can set it to Spanish but it citates as if was English, the "&" symbol still appears.
Could you please let me know which citation style you are using? Thanks in advance.
I always use "American Psychological Association 6th" style. In Mendeley it's all correctly translated to Spanish except & symbol. I'm going to explain it with an example:
If I want to cite an article written in 2008 by 2 or more authors, i.e. Antonio Torrero, Laura Martínez and Carlos Ibañez, Mendeley writes it as (Torrero, Martínez & Ibañez, 2008).
The "&" symbol is not used in Spanish, it must be "y". The result must be (Torrero, Martínez y Cazorla, 2008). Well, I think & it's optional but in my University they want "y" and I have to change it manually.
In long style citation the issue remains the same.
I would like to choose between "&" and "y" by default or at least edit the style myself but I'm not a programmer.
Thank you for the attention.
