Thinking aloud about author and publisher mark-ups
I mark up most of the pages on my site with the author and publisher mark-ups, however there are occasions in which I believe the use of the author mark-up is inappropriate.
Consider the following. Mostly as a hobby, but also as a kind of portfolio of my translation skills, and combining translation with my interest in early modern history, I have started to translate old out-of-copyright materials from English into Japanese, showing the original text on the left of the screen, and my rendition in Japanese on the right, taking inspiration from the Loeb Classical Library and Reclam bilingual books.
Here my role is not that of an author, but of a translator, perhaps an editor by stretching the definition. I still have the publisher mark-up on these pages, but I`m not entirely sure if that is appropriate either.
