When I was thinking to create the Project types in myanmarlanguage.org, I notice that we need to know the definitions of various types of licenses clearly. You can read some of the discussions in Planning For Project Types. There are a lot of licenses, such as GPL, BSD, MIT and many more.
As a web developer, sometimes I have to use other people's plug-ins, tools and scripts. Some are free for personal use. Some are free for every use. But some are not. Some developers write the license very clearly, like that "Free for both personal and commercial use". Sometimes we may see "Creative Common Share Alike version..." etc. Sometimes I confuse with license definitions and afraid to use the scripts for the clients. Then I search another scripts with similar functionalities.
I feel other burmese developers also face this kind of concern. Mostly young and less experience brothers and sisters will definately face this problem.
Do we may need to translate some common license types into a short and coincide format, maintaining the defination of the original license at the same time? If the answer is "Yes", I feel MyanmarLanguage.org is the right place to host these translations.
How do you think? Let us discuss here, all our brothers and sisters.
