  • eTranslation’s privacy policy 1 answer answered closed

    The texts that we need to translate are confidential. What happens to the texts that were submitted for translation? Do you keep them or are they deleted afterwards?

  • Who is behind ELRC? 1 answer answered closed

    Is the ELRC a company or a part of the European Commission? How are your operations funded and what does your organization look like? I have tried to find this information on your website. I want to know before I contribute with texts, etc. I work for a government agency.

  • Copyright and privacy protection of LR for sharing 1 answer answered closed

    There are several legal questions and concerns for translators who may want to share their translation memories - in particular how to get the TM (language resources) legally "ready" for sharing. This includes in particular the following issues:

    1. How to prepare TMs as they typically contain names, phone numbers and other personal information. Also, the meta-data typically contains information about the translator in charge (personal data). How to deal with this?
    2. How can privacy protection be implemented in such cases?
    3. What is the situation of the tmx as regards the copyright? How is this ensured?

  • Ownership rights 1 answer answered closed

    If a public agency uses a translation tool such as Memsource, who owns the translation data rights? The agency or the translation tool company?

  • How to download available data 1 answer answered closed

    An earlier question asked "How do I download", and got the answer "the resources must through a validation process first". This answer I fully understand, and it probably holds for the (currently) 4 resources marked with "Under validation". 

    But how do I download the 21 resources that are marked as valid (i.e. marked with licenses)?
