In the English language, Foreword and Preface are different in meaning, and books frequently have both of those:
- Foreword: another author endorses the book,
- Preface: the author(s) tell how they came to write the book.
However, I am not sure how to make this distinction in German. The Vorwort seems to me to be more of a preface than a foreword.
How would these two different words be translated when they occur at the beginning of a book?
