Hungarian term or phrase: literature / bibliography
Just an easy question for those who do it regularly: Do we need to translate the literature of quotations, bibliography, titles of conference papers at the end of an article, or in my case at the end of the abstract of a doctoral dissertation (tézisfüzet)?

thanks for your help

Explanation:
During my long practice I've never seen a case when it was required by the clients. But it does not mean anything, client may require even a translation porinted on a pink paper. So András is right because usually not and János is right too because the client is the king: he orders the music and holds the wallet.

Hungarians in this case usually say: if you listen to me you will.. do whatever you want :)

Reference information:
My experience is that in most cases when the translation is required for pursuing further education in the USA the translation of reference titles is required in square brackets after the original titles. If the translation will be used to support immigration documents the translation of such titles is not required.
