Translations[edit]

You say on your user page that you release your original translations, but you do not specify the release. Do you release them into the public domain or under the GFDL or how?--BirgitteSB 22:08, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for asking; I've changed my page to specify. I release them under GFDL to ensure that future versions are also available under the same license. --Gatewaycat 06:49, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Hello! See my posting in the Latin community here. I eventually found that this is the right place. I have proposed a group effort to get the major classical works into literal translations. I also specialise in medieval, which is more interesting because (a) mostly not translated at all and (b) some of the Latin not even in critical editions and has to be transcripted from incunabula or manuscripts.

What is the position on re-using one's own translations? And is there anyone else working on this? Best - I liked the Catullus. Ockham 07:57, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
