Discovery Institute Translation Permission Request Form

version: 8/24/18

Thank you for requesting permission to translate materials owned or managed by Discovery Institute. We are a small organization, and we receive more requests for translations than we can handle in a timely manner. So please understand that it may take a significant amount of time to actually evaluate your request, to investigate the relevant rights, and to make a final decision. In fact, sometimes it can take 12 months or more for us to reach a final decision. Also understand that unless the material you seek is directly published or produced or controlled by Discovery Institute, we may not have the authority to authorize a translation. In an effort to expedite matters, we have adopted this form to request information in a standard format.

Name of person/group seeking to translate material

E-Mail of person/group seeking to translate material

Phone number of person/group seeking to translate material
