    Hi

    I'm doing a period and genre piece for my coursework and have a critic I want to use but the quote is in German. How would I use the quote in my coursework? Would I translate/paraphrase and then footnote the original?

    Thanks

    You can either do two of the following

    1) use the German quote and footnote the translate so your reader can understand what it means.

    2) translate it and use the English version in your essay. Then footnote the German version, and adding where you got it from.

    I would suggest the first one as that's what you normally see in essays and novels etc.

    Hope this helps.
