Citing Multiple Creators

I have a need to cite creators who have different roles for the same source, but I cannot see an example. My specific case involves an author and a separate translator, both of whom I wish to cite as they both contribute to the work being analysed, but I'll try to keep the question general.

My issue is with the punctuation. The role is normally separated from the creator name with a comma, but commas might also be used when there are multiple authors. Hence, how do form an unambiguous list of creators that may have differing roles?

Hello, Tony. Have you seen these sections?

  • 12.32 Anthologies, Complex Punctuation for
  • 12.63–12.66 Edited Works ... (particularly 12.66 Citing Editors as Well as Authors)

If these don't cover your needs, can you give us a specific example to work through?

Thanks for the tips. Sections 12.32 and 12.66 both put the name of the subordinate creator after the title. I'm afraid that I saw the positioning of the translator before the title in cases where the author is implied by the title (sec. 12.9) and extrapolated from it in a logical way. For instance: Albrecht Fölsing, author, Ewald Osers, transl., ...

And another way of looking at it, Tony, is that coupling the author and the translator together, before the title, implies that the two had an equal role in the creation of the book—as when multiple authors are coupled together in that field. Most writers would argue that their contribution to the content of the book was far greater than that of a subsequent editor or translator.
