Copy right

Dear Experts.

. If I translate the poems of a poet from Bengali to English, then do I require the explicit permission of the poet to publish the English translations?

. If another author has also translated the same Bengali poems into English earlier, then do I also need his permission to publish my own version of English translations?

Regards & Thanks,

Yes, copy right means you can not publish same poem in your name without approval from the original author. If you publish without approval from the original author, then you have to pay compensation.
