Up to and including the amendment of 15:58, 19 May 2010, the field 'translated by' read (correctly) as . Indeed I made and uploaded this new translation. In the next amendment by this was changed so that, since then, the translator field has read "translated from Latin by Wikisource". This does not appear to be a proper attribution complying with . Why was the alteration made? [Terry0051, 2018 April 1]

See WS:T#Original translations for the current policy on enWS non-published translations. The "translated ..." text is hard-coded into the header template. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 18:30, 1 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
That does not address the point that the article currently appears to lack a proper attribution to comply with the CCA. [Terry0051, 2018 April 1]
@Terry0051: Like all collaborative Wikimedia pages, each contribution is attributed separately, on the page history page. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 18:34, 5 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@Beleg Tâl: @Beeswaxcandle: Well, that does not appear to be true: where then is the correct attribution in the history-page for this translation/article? It was translated by me and there is still no proper attribution on the history page or anywhere else to comply with the CCA and replace the attribution that was improperly removed from the article itself in violation of the CCA license. (Note, the CCA license conditions say "This page must provide all available authorship information." meaning the translation page, so even if the translator information were present on the history page (which it isn't), there would still be a CCA license violation.)

@Terry0051: have a look, you can clearly see that the seven contributions made on 8 December 2009‎ and the two contributions made in early January 2010 are correctly attributed to Terry0051 directly as required by the CC BY-SA license, just like every other BY-SA-licensed page on every other Wikimedia project. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 02:05, 1 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

No, attributions of the later (amending) contributions do not amount to attribution of authorship in respect of the translation. That is not merely missing: the attribution was present in the translation as posted, but has been deleted. That is a continuing violation of the CC license. [Terry0051, 2020 April 30].
