Thanks everyone for your contribution(s) here. I especially agree with Sven when he says "context needed!" (See also Thomas' remarks) It all depends upon context, and it is not possible to say definitively what ska means without the specific context. It usually means "shall," but could be used differently.
Again, thanks for the discussion. It was very useful.
Hon ska etc. etc. etc.
No just joking.
I think Charles is right to ask as if something must be allowed/permitted, it does not mean that anyone is going to ask for permission.
Is this really all the writer wants to say? (That is sm asks for permission, they cannot be refused)
Needs a bit more context to confirm this
It depends entirely on the context. "ska" kan be used to express future action, obligation, necessity, intention, plan, possibility and so on. Here I believe the best rendering probably will be:
- shall be permitted (if e.g. it is a contract)
But, depending on the context, these are also possible:
- should be permitted
- must be permitted
- will be permitted
