Hi Dear Friends!
I would like to know whether is it permissible to create an Hub by translating interesting informative and interesting articles from the remotes languages like Urdu. Please! help me.
There are so many questions that you need to answer before you get your answers.... are the articles yours? IF not, do you have the permission? Are they on the internet already? Will you get into problems of copyrights troubles if you use them..answering these questions may help you decide for yourself..
Welcome to HP
While replying you answering your clarifications on my question regarding posting of translated articles I would like to make it clear, that the question I am asking is regarding the articles written by others and have not already online and also wouldn't cause any copy write issue as well.
I would think that a translated article would be unique and yours - the issues of copyright and or where you got them must apply as mentioned above - but this is your own business.
I intend to put up considerable translated Chinese materials from various sources, mostly with considerable age and not subject to copyright, but some new stuff where the copyright is not an issue.
The bottom line is that when YOU have translated it - yours is a new original.
You can use the articles as references and should mention that in your hub, but shouldn't just translate it as it is, You can use the article and other articles too to get information for your own hub but always refer what you write.
If the articles are not in copyright, ie, historical texts, then you can translate them and post here. Just be aware that you do need to keep on the right side of copyright law.
If the articles are not copyrighted or if you have the lawful right to publish them, you can translate and publish. You need to comply with the publishing standards, particularly the language standards, of Hubpages.
If it is translated, you should obtain permission if that is possible. Then you should credit your source and state whether it is translated in whole or just excerpts.
If it is used as a resource, it is not obligatory to list resources, especially those that are common knowledge in some language.
Not to brag, but sometimes credentials are important:
I have been translating and publishing for 30 years and my organization has been doing so for 75 years. I most recently worked in the International Corporate Communications department, so it was critical that I be current with such procedures.

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?

HubPages is very firm in their rule to only use photos for which you have permission to use. Hypothetically, what happens if you break this rule? I've seen many people using images that are clearly not theirs to use and...

I'm planning a hub about one particular actor in one particular scene of a movie. Without a visual representation of the actor in the scene the article would be meaningless, but no free or non-copyrighted photos appear...

I always use visual watermarks with all my online photos. I don't feel comfortable using my photos online without them. Almost all my photos that transferred over have them. I heard that photos...
