I am working on bibliography cards. If the book was written by one author, then translated by someone else, how or would i source the translator?

This webpage will explain and give examples of how to do this.

Thank you soo much! but do you know how to source a French author that has d' infront of the last name?

I'm not sure, but I believe you alphabetize without the "d'" but leave it in the name itself.

Alexis de Tocqueville was a writer and was written about quite a bit. He is often referred to as simply Tocqueville.

Scroll down to the sections under the heading References.

One thing you can try is to enter the last name of the person in the Wikipedia search box in the site above (at the left, near the top) and see how it comes up. Check the References section for that, too. If there's nothing in Wikipedia, try it again in www.google.com and take a look at different websites.

Another teacher here may have a more definitive answer for you, but this is how I would handle it.

Thank you for using the Jiska Homework Help Forum. How interesting that I never even saw this posting! There are so few foreign language questions that I hate to miss ANY! If you mean "d'" then the last name must begin with a vowel (A, E, I, O, U, Y, etc.) There are many with "de," for example Guy de Maupassant.

At the moment, I'm stypmied and can only think of:
Charles d'Orléans, (1394-1465)
Agrippa d'Aubigné (1552-1630)

Hope it's not too late!
