Apologies if this has been asked before... is translation of something an acceptable hub or not ?
I've just started to read a very interesting Chinese novel and have yet to find an English translation of the same on the internet. Am currently trying to improve my Chinese writing and I thought it would be a cool idea to try and translate the novel to put on my own blog...
Just wondering would my translation be accepted as a hub, or will it be marked as plagiarism ? Would be great if I could share the story with you guys but dont wanna break the rules. oh and my translation may not be 100% correct, but will say so in the hub xD thanks in advance for your time !
I myself would not see any problem with a translation as long as it is your own translation and not another person's translation. Perhaps in the hub you could point out the problems and challenges encountered in translation,
Yeah, i would translate it to English, and then tell it in your own words, maybe chuck a link back to source for good measure. Should be fine
Well, the problem here is that you did not write the book that you are translating - but yet you stand to profit from it.
You could turn all ads off and present the thing that way with a forward that this is your translation of the novel by "Mr. China Novelist."
Or. . . .you could uniquely interpret it in your own way as a total departure from the Chinese original. Perhaps you could "Westernize" it and make it your own, while still crediting the original source.

Lately, a lot of hubs have been published on HubPages that are written in Spanish. Since we only allow English hubs on HubPages, Maddie has to find them and moderate them, which is a lot of work for her. We decided to improve the situation by trying to automatically detect when a hub is written in...

I've received an email through HP requesting permission to translate a hub into Turkish and post it. I am inclined to grant permission (the hub gets little traffic in any case) if a backlink is provided.Would such a translation be considered a duplicate copy and end up with the hub being...

Ok so I was bored, and I decided to put a small portion of a famous song into babelfish translator, translate to Japanese and translate back. Can you tell what the original song was?Edit: Words like 'you'll and you've' etc. have been replaced with their full form (you will or you have).Connect that...
