support other languages than english

Asked by David Wille on 2012-06-10


I really like the style of this curriculum vita and I want to use an enclosure in the letter option.

My problem is, that I was not able to redefine "enclosure" to another word like "Anhang" in german.
Is there a way to do this and / or are there any plans to support other languages than english?

Kind regards,

Hi David,

It's now part of the 1.1.0 release of moderncv, which should be released in a few days.
You can now either specify another string as optional argument to \enclosure or redefine \enclname.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Hi Xavier,

thanks for your work! I really appreciate it!

Just out of curiosity, are you going to update the files on CTAN? I'm using TeXLive and I have no idea how to manually update the provided package, so I am relying on the TeXLive update.

Thanks again!

Of course. Each release is always uploaded to CTAN on the same day it is uploaded here, but it takes a few days for the update to be installed there and to propagate to the various mirrors. Just be patient for 1 or 2 days :)

I was thinking so, but just wanted to be sure :)
