I have my thesis abstract translated by an Italian friend (from English to Italian). Therefore, I'm wondering if I should mention it somewhere in the abstract or acknowledgment that the Italian abstract was written by him. What is the common way in academia?
The whole thesis is in English, but I wanted to add an Italian abstract as well, since the the thesis is submitted to a university in Italy.
A small piece of translation like this should be clearly credited, but is not large enough that I think that it should be considered a significant piece of independent work.
As such, I think that a statement in the thesis acknowledgements would be sufficient.
