Translation process
The lawyers of CC DE and CC AT will hold a translation sprint in Vienna in January 2015. This will hopefully yield a unified first draft for CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 in German. It will be handed over to Swiss lawyers for cross-checking. The public will be notified via the involved CC teams' website, social media and other channels such as and several law blogs, the authors of which are part of the translation group's network.


The effort will be coordinated by John Weitzmann (CC DE Legal Lead) and Alexander Baratsits (prospective CC AT Legal Lead), but most probably also someone from CC CH will take part in the coordination.

Word choice
So far we didn't encounter any problematic terminology, although in general the legal meaning of "work" in anglo-american law differs from that of "Werk" in German. We'll look into these things in more detail throughout the course of the translation.
