For example, the title of the source is in Arabic.

Book/article titles and names written in Latin-based scripts (French, Spanish, German, etc.) can be cited with only minor adjustments. Provide a translation of the title in square brackets. Do not translate names written in Latin-based scripts.

Titles and names written in non-Latin scripts (Chinese, Arabic, Russian, etc.) must be transliterated before translating and citing. If you are uncomfortable transliterating material yourself, don't guess -- get help! Titles should be transliterated and translated into English. Names should be transliterated (not translated) and arranged in "Western" order, e.g., ordered by surname in reference list.
