No. The odd-numbered references should be in French and the even-numbered
ones in German. Anyone who cannot read French and German is obviously
terribly uneducated. The use of untranslated foreign references in
academic works is standard form. Don't put references in Latin, though,
as its use is now regarded as old fashioned. Verbum sap., etc.
