Use this template to note the license of an original non-English work and the English translation separately. In order to be hosted at Wikisource, both the original work and the translation must be freely licensed or in the public domain, and both licenses must be noted, even if they are the same.

You add the relevant licensing templates, complete with braces, to this template in the corresponding fields. You need to use the named parameters.

{{translation license
 | original    = 
 | translation = 


{{translation license
 | original    = {{PD-old}}
 | translation = {{PD-self}}

Translation namespaceEdit

In the Translation namespace, if there is no license specified for the translation, the template will automatically use {{GFDL/CC-BY-SA-3.0}} as the translation license. A license for the original text must still be provided.


If a translation license is not provided, and the page is not in Translation namespace, this template adds pages to Category:Translations with no license template
