This is the main portal for projects translating the suite of six CC licenses and the CC0 Public Domain Dedication. For information on translating CC license deeds, visit [[Translating_CC_Deeds|Translating CC Deeds]]. If you are interested in translating the licenses or other legal tools, please see the [[Legal Code Translation Policy]].
 
 
If a CC license deed is not yet available in your language, we recommend translating that first.  For information on translating CC license deeds, visit [[Translating_CC_Deeds|Translating CC Deeds]].
 
 
 
If you are interested in translating CC0, please see [[CC0 Official Translation Process and Policy]].
 
  
 
==Translations Generally==
 
==Translations Generally==
Creative Commons supports two types of linguistic translations of its licenses and CC0:  official and unofficial.  For version 3.0 of the licenses, CC supports unofficial translations only.  These are not suitable for adoption but are provided for information purposes only.  Beginning with version 4.0, CC will support official linguistic translations of its six (6) core licenses.  The translations process and policy for the 4.0 licenses will be published around the time those licenses are finalized for launch, expected early 2013. '''Please note that translations (whether official or unofficial) involve linguistic translation only -- they do not adapt the licenses or CC0 to account for local law.'''

Beginning with version 4.0, CC is supporting official linguistic translations of its six (6) core licenses. '''Please note that translations involve linguistic translation only—they do not adapt the licenses or CC0 to account for local law.''' As of December 2012, CC also supports official translations of CC0 version 1.0.   
 
 
As of December 2012, CC supports official translations of CC0 version 1.0.  Please see the  [[CC0 Official Translation Process and Policy]] for more information on how to start a project to translate CC0 officially into your local language.  All CC0 translation projects must be approved by Creative Commons in advance.  Those projects for which approval has been given are listed below with links to the relevant project page.  CC's policy is to support a single official translation into any particular language, absent a compelling reason otherwise.  Please do not start a CC0 translation project without first contacting Creative Commons.

'''Note:''' Translations are to help people understand Creative Commons licenses by allowing them to read the licenses in their own languages.  The only versions of the 3.0 international license suite (formerly known as the "unported" licenses) are the English language licenses -- no translations of the 3.0 international license suite are official. '''Please do not use translations of the 3.0 international licenses -- licensors should not link to or otherwise identify any of the unofficial translations referenced from this page.'''
+
Please see the [[Legal Code Translation Policy]] for more information on how to start a project to translate CC0 or the CC licenses officially into your local language. CC's policy is to support a single official translation into any particular language, absent a compelling reason otherwise. All legal code translation projects must be approved by Creative Commons in advance; please do not start a legal code translation project without first contacting Creative Commons.
  
==Unofficial Translation Process for 3.0 License Suite==
+
(For version 3.0 of the licenses, CC supports unofficial translations only.  These are not official and not suitable for adoption, but are provided solely for information purposes. '''Please do not use translations of the 3.0 international licenses—licensors should not link to or otherwise identify any of the unofficial translations when applying licenses to their materials.''' Those interested in translating CC licenses should join a translation project for the 4.0 licenses. If you would like to read the process for unofficial translations of 3.0, it has been moved [[Unofficial_translation_process_for_3.0|to a separate page]] for historical information.)
'''Note:  CC does not recommend new translation projects for the version 3.0 licenses at this time due to the versioning to 4.0. The information provided below is for reference purposes only.'''
 
  
'''Who:''' Translation teams may be composed of one or more Affiliate Teams from the CC Affiliate Network and other volunteers within the Creative Commons Community who are interested in making the licenses accessible to a wider community. We strongly suggest having at least one lawyer fluent in both languages on the team because words can often have very specific legal meanings.
+
==Translation Guide==
 +
As we work with teams on translation projects, we are developing collections of advice and issues to guide future teams' efforts. These include general proofing advice, as well as common errors, and words and phrases that are of key importance or have presented difficulty in each particular legal tool.
  
'''Step 1:''' The translation team works on a first draft, literal translation of the [http://creativecommons.org/licenses/ international CC licenses] . Contact the team to find out how to contribute to the translation.  Every translated license must include the following disclaimer, also translated:
+
*Read the [[Legal tools translation guide]].
:"This is an unofficial translation of the Creative Commons ''license title'' into ''language''. It was not published by Creative Commons and is not legally binding and should not be applied to your work''. However, we hope that this translation will help language speakers understand the CC ''license title'' better."
 
  
'''Step 2:''' When a draft translation is ready, the translation team posts the draft on the CC wiki for public comment.

==Translation status of the 4.0 licenses and of CC0==
  
'''Step 3:''' The public comment period takes place, lasting anywhere from several weeks to several months depending on the engagement of the community. The comment period allows for conversations around word choice.

Welcome to the CC Translation Project!

Please note this is an evolving project and we welcome feedback.

This is the main portal for projects translating the suite of six CC licenses and the CC0 Public Domain Dedication. For information on translating CC license deeds, visit Translating CC Deeds. If you are interested in translating the licenses or other legal tools, please see the Legal Code Translation Policy.

Translations Generally

Beginning with version 4.0, CC is supporting official linguistic translations of its six (6) core licenses. Please note that translations involve linguistic translation only—they do not adapt the licenses or CC0 to account for local law. As of December 2012, CC also supports official translations of CC0 version 1.0.

Please see the Legal Code Translation Policy for more information on how to start a project to translate CC0 or the CC licenses officially into your local language. CC's policy is to support a single official translation into any particular language, absent a compelling reason otherwise. All legal code translation projects must be approved by Creative Commons in advance; please do not start a legal code translation project without first contacting Creative Commons.

(For version 3.0 of the licenses, CC supports unofficial translations only. These are not official and not suitable for adoption, but are provided solely for information purposes. Please do not use translations of the 3.0 international licenses—licensors should not link to or otherwise identify any of the unofficial translations when applying licenses to their materials. Those interested in translating CC licenses should join a translation project for the 4.0 licenses. If you would like to read the process for unofficial translations of 3.0, it has been moved to a separate page for historical information.)

Translation Guide

As we work with teams on translation projects, we are developing collections of advice and issues to guide future teams' efforts. These include general proofing advice, as well as common errors, and words and phrases that are of key importance or have presented difficulty in each particular legal tool.
