Proper Citation Question

  1. Sep 22, 2013 #1
    Hello everyone!

    I am just wondering how I would go about citing this book. It contains a translation of Einstein's paper on the photoelectric effect. Should I just cite the book with the page numbers? Or cite Einstein's paper and give credit for the translation?

    Note: I only used the book to read Einstein's paper in english.

    Funny to note, I am German, but cannot read or speak German. . .


    For example:

    Ter Haar, D. (1967). The Old Quantum Theory. Publication Location: Publisher.


    Einstein, A. (1905). On a heuristic point of view about the creation and conversion of light. (D. Ter Harr, Trans.). Publication Location: Publisher. (Original work published 1905)
