# [Tex/LaTex] Automatically convert quotations in the form of “abc” to become “abc”

punctuation

I did not know that latex had different symbol for opening and closing quotation marks. I've used it like "abc" every where and just realised that I really should have used abc". Is there anyway I can convert all the quotations to become like “abc"? Doing it manually will take forever as I have a lot of quotations.

An alternative to quotes is csquotes from 2011, while quotes is from 1997 …

\documentclass[english]{article}

\usepackage{babel}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\MakeOuterQuote{"}

\begin{document}
Hello "World"!
\end{document}
