Permission to translate a case

Alt text

If you would like to translate a case, you will need permission to do so.

Depending on which case or cases you wish to translate, you must either:

  • Request permission from us; or
  • Contact the school or publisher directly.

We do not charge a translation fee, but you will have to buy copies via our website for use in the classroom.

Step one

Check our list to see if you need to apply to us or directly to the school or publisher.

If the case you wish to translate is published by any of the organisations on this list, you will need to apply directly to them for permission. Contact details are provided.

Otherwise, please use our online form to apply to us for one-time, non-exclusive permission to translate the case.

Step two

We will check your request and, if possible, give you permission to translate the case, subject to our terms and conditions.

Step three

You provide us with an electronic version of the translated case so we can register it in our collection.

Step four

When we have registered the case, we’ll send you a link so you can order copies for use in the classroom.
