English dinat.bst

If for some reason you would like to use the BibTeX style dinat for your English LaTeX document you have to change some abbreviations which are defined in dinat.bst if you want to cite like “Jones et al.” or “Jones and Coppi” instead of the respective German abbreviations.

The lines you should be looking for and some possible replacements are

%%——————————————————————————
%% push standard text items on top of the stack
%%——————————————————————————
FUNCTION {push.bd} { “Volume” }
FUNCTION {push.diplom} { “Master thesis” }
FUNCTION {push.disser} { “Ph.D. thesis” }
FUNCTION {push.forschung} { “Research Report” }
FUNCTION {push.hrsg} { “Editor” }
FUNCTION {push.in} { “In:” }
FUNCTION {push.isbn} { “ISBN” }
FUNCTION {push.issn} { “ISSN” }
FUNCTION {push.kap} { “Chap.” }
FUNCTION {push.nr} { “Nr.” }
FUNCTION {push.sn} { “p” }
FUNCTION {push.s} { “p.” }
FUNCTION {push.siehe} { “see” }
FUNCTION {push.ua} { “et\,al” }
FUNCTION {push.und} { “and” }
FUNCTION {push.url.name} { “URL” }
FUNCTION {push.veranst} { “event” }
FUNCTION {push.von} { “by” }
FUNCTION {push.zugriff} { “date visited” }

    No. instead of Nr., if I’m not mistaken.
