- Subject: Permission request from "Translation for education"
I am a student at the Department of Foreign Languages and at the same time
a volunteer at an organization named “Translation for Education”. I love
surfing on the Internet and being informed about the latest happenings
around me. Unfortunately, most of my fellow citizens don’t know English, so
that makes them feel somehow excluded from all this variety of useful info
from the Internet.
That was the reason that made me decide to start being a volunteer at such
an NGO. So I created a blog, where I post translations of some of the texts
that really caught my attention. Sometimes it’s a simple description of
some organization, and sometimes it might be a narrowly specialized
Don’t you think that I do that without authors’ permission! I do ask them
if they let me translate and then post the translation on my blog. And if
they don’t, then they don’t.
So I am asking you about the same, actually. Could you provide me the
permission to translate the article on page http://cygwin.com/faq.html into
Armenian, on condition that the translation is absolutely non-commercial
and I will mention and credit you as the author of the article, and put the
link to your source next to my translation too.
Hoping for your understanding and waiting for your answer!
