The term "free cultural works" exist in many places of the text, but I bring it up here under the "Summary" heading since that is the first time it appears in the text.

==== Question: Links to Wikipedia articles ====

==== Links to Wikipedia articles ====
 
The original contains a link to English Wikipedia, [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/License license] (piped to display the text "free license") i the section "Preamble". This strikes me as funny since this wiki contains a page [[licenses]]; it is linked in the summary, piped as "free licenses". If the text will contain links to English Wikipedia - what do we do with those when translating the text? Do we keep the link to enwiki, do we replace it with a link to the corresponding article on svwiki? If this article does not exist, do we just leave the link out? The first alternative means we provide English speaking but not Swedish speaking information, and the translation exists mainly for those who are not good in English. (In this case, there is not corresponding article but I think the problem should be discussed on a more general level.) An article on svwiki might be informative and contain roughly the same info as the one on enwiki, but maybe not - so the second alternative is a probably loss in information, and maybe even adding bad information. The last alternative is a simple loss of information.
