Footnoting a Citation from a Translated Book

F.A.Q. #13

Hi there,

Firstly, thanks very much for creating this site. No matter how many guidelines I’ve received, I always seem to come across a situation that isn’t dealt with! I’m wondering how to properly footnote a citation from a book that has been translated. For example, I’m quoting from a book originally written in German but translated to English. The book was originally entitled, Altirischen by Rudolf Thurneysen but my copy is called A Grammar of Old Irish, translated by D.A Binchy and Osborn Bergin. I’d greatly appreciate your help.
