    I recently wrote a poem that I translated from the original language to English. I have puplished the poem in the original language/verion on my personal blog. I now have a link from my hub to my blog. Is that allowed? Should I remove the link?

        Thank you Pulsard! I hope I'm on the safe side. The weather isn't the best today - cloudy but no rain. smile

      When you translate would it sometimes be better to create a similar poem, with English words that mimic your original poem, than do a direct translation of your work?

        W1totalk, I could try that. Most times I just write in English and never think of what it would sound like in my mother tongue. This poem was just a test to see what it would be like. My English vocabulary isn't that big and personally I think my poems in English are a little simple. Thank you for your suggestion!
