Usage[edit]

Use this template to note the license of an original non-English work and the English translation separately. In order to be hosted at Wikisource, both the original work and the translation must be freely licensed or in the public domain, and both licenses must be noted, even if they are the same.

You add the relevant licensing templates, complete with braces, to this template in the corresponding fields. You need to use the named parameters.

{{translation license
 | original    = 
 | translation = 
}}

Example[edit]

{{translation license
 | original    = {{PD-old}}
 | translation = {{PD-self}}
}}
This is a translation and has a separate copyright status from the original text. The license for the translation applies to this edition only.
Original:
This work published before January 1, 1923 is in the public domain worldwide because the author died at least 100 years ago.
 
Translation:
I, the copyright holder of this work, hereby release it into the public domain. This applies worldwide.

In case this is not legally possible:
I grant anyone the right to use this work for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law.
