As a philosopher, I have to deal with lots of different styles from 
dozens of different journals.

I use natbib, mcbride 
(http://www.digitas.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/wiki/ken/McBride), and BibDesk 
and have no troubles with getting exactly what I want.

For reprints and translations, I just use the note field. McBride tacks 
it on at the end of the bibliographic entry as it should. If you are 
doing citation in footnotes rather than in-line citations, jurabib 
really is what you want.

Take a look at McBride. It might just be what you want.

unthinkable, let us do the undoable. Let us prepare to grapple with the
ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all." -- Douglas
