I'm looking for a site/page somewhere that has translations of common open-source licenses. In particular, I'm looking for translations for the MIT license.

Is there a site or resource somewhere that has these translations?

  • How accurate do you need them to be? Just I'm thinking of google translate.

  • @George Edison: You aren't likely to get 100% accurate translations of legal text from one language to another. Moreover, anything licensed with a translation of a license isn't licensed with the original license, and if there's a requirement for an OSI-approved license you'll have to stick to English. However, the MIT license isn't very long or complicated, so you should be able to write a similar license easily in any language you're familiar with. May 12, 2011 at 20:23
  • @David: Unfortunately I am not really fluent in any language other than English. Someone else has translated a large portion of my application into another language and I wanted to spare them the hassle of translating the license. I just took it for granted that someone had already done this somewhere and I could just copy the translation. May 12, 2011 at 20:34

If you go to the wikipedia page of the MIT licence http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIT_License, you can change to other language pages by wikipedia on the left sidebar.

The other language pages have translations for the original licence.
