Works in another language

Works in another language

When citing a work in a different language from the one you are using in your text, write the reference in the original language but provide a translation of the title in brackets after the original title. If a translation of the title is provided by the author of the work you want to cite, use this translation. If no translation is provided, translate the title to the best of your ability. If the work cited is part of a larger work (e.g. a chapter in an edited book), you do not need to translate the title of the larger work (e.g. the title of the edited book). If the original language uses a different alphabet from the language used in your text (e.g. Arabic, Mandarin or Russian), transliterate the text into the Roman alphabet.
