No, it doesn't help, because I need two forms IN the MODS record: the
form of the original language and/or script, AND the form of the
translation/transliteration. It's standard citation practice, and I
simply can't rely on MADS for this.
I could imagine using MADS to select those two among other
possibilities, but that's another issue.
