Translation resources and translator disempowerment (2016)

Abstract Language resources used for machine translation are created by human translators. These translators have legal rights with regard to copyright ownership of translated texts and databases of parallel bilingual texts, but may not be in a position to assert these rights due to employment practices widespread in the translation industry. This paper examines these employment practices in detail, and looks at the legal situation for ownership of translation resources. It also considers the situation from the standpoint of current owners of resources.
