I am currently using the `\autoref`

command from the `hyperref`

package to refer to my theorems etc. However, I want to be able to (easily) refer to two or more theorems/lemmas/…, e.g. by calling something like `\autoref{lemma1,lemma2,lemma5}`

— where of course lemmas 1, 2 and 5 are labeled `lemma1`

, `lemma2`

and `lemma5`

respectively — so that the reference shows: "Lemmas 1, 2 and 5".

Can anyone help me with this? It doesn't seem to me like the `hyperref`

package provides this functionality.

Minimal example

```
\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb}
\usepackage{mathtools}
\usepackage{cleveref}
\mathtoolsset{showonlyrefs,showmanualtags}
\begin{document}
This is the first equation
\begin{equation}
a^2 + b^2 = c^2
\end{equation}
and this is the second equation
\begin{equation}
\label{test}
\alpha^2 + \beta^2 = \gamma^2
\end{equation}
Referring to second equation here: \eqref{test}.
\end{document}
```

EDITadded a way to set the plural names, which in effect gives foreign language supportI decided that I needed this feature of

`\autoref`

today and then I was surprised that I was unable to find it...so here is one way to define an`\Autoref`

command that will do it. Specifically,will expand into the plural of the first reference followed by hyperlinks for all of the references. Here's the sample output from the MWE below:

There are a few minor(?) limitations in that the macro assumes that:

all of the references are of the same "type" (so all lemmas, or all theorems etc)

doesn't handle the optional argument to

`\autoref`

or the`*`

-form (would be easy to fix...)it probably does not play well with equation references

by default the plural form is obtained simply by adding an

`s`

to the "singular" name (so it is English centric). This can be overridden by defining a plural version of the autorefname, for example`\providecommand*{\lemmaautorefnameplural}{Lots of lemmas}`

. A more realistic application would be to define plurals for other languages. The`...autorefnameplural`

form is optionalThe

`\Autoref`

macro behaves like`\autoref`

when it is given one reference.Anyway, here's the code:

If you uncomment the line

then the output is:

A more realistic use of this feature would be to add foreign language support.
