My apologies in advance if this question is misplaced here. Using a reference like this (for online resourses)

Heraclitus, 'Fragments Of Heraclitus - Wikisource, The Free Online Library', En.wikisource.org, 2014 http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Fragments_of_Heraclitus#Fragment_1 [accessed 24 October 2014]

do I need to include somewhere that the translator is John Burnet? I assume so, but I cannot find anything in the style guide to indicate where I would put the translator (maybe just, "Heraclitus, translated by John Burnet, ..." ?).

One of the several reasons for citation is to give credit where credit is due. Thus, you must cite the translator. How to do so? Just like you would an editor.

  • And also, the translator may have made/corrected a mistake from the original text that could be relevant.
