Frequently asked questions
Here are some sample questions we are frequently asked by language resource owners
If I have access to a multilingual website, can I lawfully create a multilingual language resource out of it? Can I then share it under an Open License?
Are translations protected by copyright? If so, who holds the copyright? How about machine translation?
In some countries (e.g. in Germany), official documents are expressly excluded from copyright. Does this mean that they can be considered public domain also in countries that do not have such a limitation (e.g. in the UK)?
How do you ensure the quality of data made available on ELRC-SHARE repository? Is there a validation process?
Why would we need eTranslation? We have human translators!
