# LaTeX hyphenation rules

Can anybody tell me how to change the hyphenation rules in LaTeX ? I can't find any information about it.
I would like to use a dutch hyphenation pattern. I'm not an expert in this matter.  I saw that it was possible to change these rules for iniTeX. Can I use it as well for LaTeX ?

thanks,

Stef

You should be able to use hte babel package in Latex. E.g.

\usepackage[english,dutch]{babel}

loads english and dutch, making dutch the default. Lateron, you can say

\selectlanguage{english}

to switch language. I use it for german texts and it works very good.

Indeed Babel is necessary, but you also should uncomment the language (e.g. dutch) while running texconfig.

So Babel is just a part of the job.
