How do I reference things that I have translated?

I am working on something that is not originally in English, so how do I reference things when I translate them? When I translate exactly what the person/text says and when I paraphrase.

Hi Luiza,

We've been asked this question previously - the response to that can be found here - https://www.lib.uts.edu.au/question/45525/self-translation-textual-quote

Basically you can both paraphrase and quote as you would in English, however when you are quoting you should probably indicate that you have translated the text yourself, either in the body of your writing or in the in text citation. My translation, or translated by [insert your name here]

I hope this helps, le t me know if not.
