I noticed recently that Facebook has been automatically pulling translations from LyricsTranslate when it translates songs/poetry into the user's language. I think this is kind of weird, especially given that many people here post artistic translations that they don't want copied without permission. What do you all think about this?
I personally am fine with actual people posting my translations (artistic or otherwise) on other sites as long as they say I wrote it (I'm actually happy when they do so, because it indicates they liked my work). However, having Facebook do this automatically with a "Rate This Translation" link at the bottom rubs me the wrong way. I don't put translations on LT for them to be grabbed by Facebook and Google as fodder for their translation machines. (I had a feeling Google was grabbing snippets from LT to feed Google Translate, but I never suspected either Google or Facebook would grab an entire translated poem.
At least Facebook had the decency to put my name on stuff, which is how I found it, but I don't know if it always manages to add authors' names. Anybody else noticed this and found it irritating?
