A question I have in mind recently:
Can I translate English articles I read in newspapers or internet, of which the content I really like, into my mother tongue language, and put into my website? I'd like to take it as a hobby or sth.. Of course, I will cite the source of original articles. But I am still not sure if this action is against copyright. Do I need the permission of the authors?

Thank you for your interest in answering.

Have a nice day.

谢谢Phil Hand的详细回复和提醒。



yes, conditions apply Jul 10, 2015

yes you can, your work is just like sharing something in social networking sites. translations of main stuffs in your language will spread the news among your country people easily but your website will be recorded as spam if you tried to promote your site through the contents
