I have a basic question that others have definitely considered.
Often there are papers that originally appeared in a language that one might not understand (and I mean a natural language here). I would like to cite the original paper, because that is where the credit belongs. But on the other hand, doing so violates the golden-rule of read that paper that you cite! What should I do to overcome this dilemma?
So far, I have always cited the original, and if possible some other related work that has appeared in English---but sometimes, reviewers write back that I should not be citing papers written in a language different from English, which is what motivated me to ask this question.
Thanks for any useful advice.
