• How to change the language of Zotero GUI? -> https://www.zotero.org/support/supported_languages

• Difference between \centering and \begin{center}, \end{center}
• Different authors have to be seperated by "and" in the author-field. A comma will be used to seperate last name and first name. A semicolon will be just looked as any text. Moreover, this often lead to errors like "too many comas".
• "The standard classes, article, report and book support 3 different font sizes, 10pt, 11pt, 12pt (by default 10pt)." (see here for a nice explanation).
