Q. How do i cite an article from 1888 that was translated in it's entirety in a Journal in 2007


You did not specify if you are using MLA or APA citation, so I am providing information for MLA. Please contact me if you need a different format. I am not sure if you have the original publication information for the journal article from 1888, so I am going to suggest this format.  It is actually a combination of two formats, a translation and a reprint.  MLA 5.5.11. A Translation and MLA 5.5.16. A Republished Book or Journal Issue. Here is my suggestion:

Author last name, author first name. "Title of Article in English." Publication Title  vol#.Issue(2007): page numbers. Trans. First Name Last Name. Trans. of "Title of Article in Other Language." Rpt Of Publication Title vol#.Issue (1887):page numbers. Print  or  Database Name. Web. Access Date


Moskowitz, Paula.  "Citation For Students." Journal of Citation 24.2(2007): 34-50. Trans. Lynda Hanley. Trans. of "Citacion Para Estudiantes." Rpt. of History of Citation 10.7(1888): 24-40. JSTOR. Web. 15 Nov. 2010.

Citations should be double-spaced and use hanging indent.
