Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Eclipse License in other languages

I believe the Babel project explicitly avoids accepting translations of legal files. There's just too much risk of the subtle legal details getting lost in translation [1]. I don't understand the relationship between translation and the shared license feature though. The shared license mechanism is a build time feature. Once built, the license is in the file of your feature, which means it can get translation by the usual feature translation mechanism. Whether the feature was built using a shared license or a hard-coded license makes no difference.

[cross-project-issues-dev] Eclipse License in other languages

Hi guys,

I looked around a little, but I couldn't find if are there translated versions of the Eclipse License.
I'm asking this because I want to know if I should show a translated version of the EPL when I use Eclipse in another language. This would lead me to a problem when using the shared license feature, though.
