rewrite or historical?

I would like to translate some information from a page in one language to another language on another page, but don't know how to credit the first author. An example: I would like to amplify pages in English from the same topic in Spanish by translating certain information in Spanish into English, but obviously I cannot take credit for the original work, only the translation.
I have also noticed some pages in English sound machine-translated from Spanish and could read better with a little love and care. I would like to "clean up" the translation a bit but don't know how to credit the original author.
So my questions are
1. How do I credit an author in Spanish while making it clear my contribution is only a translation?
2. How can I make it clear that I am cleaning up what I think is a machine translation, e,g, not claiming authorship, only translation?
