Editor and Translator

I am a student majoring in liberal arts and philosophy and I tend to use many collected work references with the same editor and translator. I was wondering if there is any way to make a citation condition to combine the outputs. If it is the case that the field inputs of both the editor and translator fields are the same and in the same order, then, instead of having two different outputs (Edited by X (and Y). Translated by X (and Y). or ed. X, trans. X (and Y)), the fields are combined into a single output. For Bibliography, the output would read: Edited and Translated by X, or X and Y; in a note, the output would read: ed. and trans. X or eds. and trans. X and Y.

Examples of single editor and translator, but also applicable to plural situations. In plural situations, the addition of and between two editors and translators or the addition of a comma between each editor and translator and a comma proceeded by and before the editor and translator.

Bibliography: Collected Work

(Author) Last Name, First Name. Title: Subtitle. Edited and Translated by First Name Last Name. City: Publisher, Year.

Bibliography: Contribution in a Collected Work

(Author) Last Name, First Name. "Title: Subtitle." In Collected Work Title: Subtitle. Edited and Translated by First Name Last Name, Page Range. City: Publisher, Year.

Note: Collected Work

(Author) First Name Last Name, Title: Subtitle, ed. and trans. First Name Last Name (City: Publisher, Year), Page range.

Note: Contribution in a Collected Work

(Author) First Name Last Name, "Title: Subtitle," in Collected Work Title: Subtitle, ed. and trans. First Name Last Name (City: Publisher, Year), Page Range.

Thank you for time and assistance!

Dear Jack

I created this reference in Citavi to show in the citation style editor how to achieve the desired goal:

6de0a306bd8ab6ec826a395743937240

In the Citation Style Editor, create a new template that uses this script. In the new template, you add a new component (here: publisher) that is given the prefix "Edited and translated by" as shown in the next screenshot:

I have attached the style in which the above example is implemented. I hope my explanations were helpful.

Kind regards,

Peter
