Introduction

Under Linden Lab’s “Second Life Community Translation Program” (“Community Translator Program”) you are given an opportunity to translate Second Life “Knowledge Base” articles (“Articles”), software strings and phrases from English into a language in which you are fluent. These translated Articles may then be accessed and read by members of the Second Life community or others. By enrolling as a Community Translator using the online signup form provided, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth below (the "Agreement"), so please read these terms and conditions carefully. In this Agreement, "Linden Lab," “we” or “us” refers to Linden Research, Inc., and "Community Translator", "you", or "your" refers to the party performing the language translation services.

Community Translator's Responsibilities

You may select an Article from our lists here: to translate from English into a language in which you are fluent. In doing so, you agree to provide translations in good faith and you agree not to provide automated or inappropriate translations. Although you are responsible for the content and accuracy each translation, Linden Lab reserves the right to review, reject, or remove any translation at any time for any reason in its sole discretion. You represent and warrant that all information you provide for the purpose of enrolling as a Community Translator will be accurate, complete and current.

Proprietary Rights

You acknowledge and agree that Linden Lab owns all legal right, title and interest in and to the Articles, including any intellectual property or other proprietary rights which subsist in the Articles translated or the resulting translations (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist). You therefore acknowledge that you have no intellectual property or other proprietary rights in such Articles translated or the resulting translations.

No Compensation

You understand that Linden Lab, other Second Life users, and the general public, may use your translations for any purpose. You acknowledge that you are providing these translations on a purely voluntary basis, as a means of assisting the Second Life community to use, implement, and understand various facets of the Second Life platform. Linden Lab makes no guarantee or representation as to whether or not your translations will be used, and you understand and acknowledge that Linden Lab will not compensate you for the translations that you provide.

Term and Termination

The term of this Agreement begins on the date you enroll in the Community Translation Program and continues until terminated as specified herein.

You may do so by emailing us at ctproject@secondlife.com. In such a case, your status as a Community Translator will be deemed terminated when Linden Lab receives notice from you.

Linden Lab may, in its sole discretion, terminate or discontinue the Community Translation Program at any time, terminate your Community Translator status, discontinue your participation in the Community Translation Program, or remove, edit or alter your translations.
