Is Translating Becoming A Racist Crime?

TRANSLATING IS BECOMING A RACIST CRIME

A petition should be launched about the freedom of translators to translate what they want from any language they understand into any language they are fluent in. And how do we do at the university for translating tests? The subject will be different for each group, duly separated in different rooms, men vs women; Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, handlists, Christians (split up according to the branch of Christianity each student belongs to), and of course agnostics and atheists. Then split the student bodies in nationalities, in color, in age, in height and weight, etc., and the subject will have to be exactly “CORRECT.”

And it is an abusive understanding of copyright in the USA to say that no one has the right to translate a text by any author without his/her/its/their permission, even if it is a complete work, novel, book, poem, or whatever. It is generally courteous to inform the author and it is compulsory to have his/her/its/their agreement before any public use, and even so, the freedom of the translator is protected as much as that of the author, and “fair use” can, under some conditions, suspend the obligation of paying any royalties.
