When translating "Free Cultural Works" I am torn between "frjáls menningarverk" and "frjáls hugverk". The first one is a literal translation which works fine as far as grammar is concerned but sounds rather pompous and contrived to me. The latter is based on a more traditional vocabulary, "hugverk" literally translates to "mind work" and has traditionally been used for any kind of work that happens through creative thought. Perhaps it is going too far from the intended language of the English version to strip away references to "culture"? --[[User:Bjarki S|Bjarki S]] ([[User talk:Bjarki S|talk]]) 13:00, 29 December 2012 (EST)

If the translation is finished, shouldn’t the English original be removed? I would then add {{#language:is}} to the translation list template. --[[User:Mormegil|Mormegil]] ([[User talk:Mormegil|talk]]) 07:14, 24 January 2013 (EST)
