translation is afaik treated as a derivative work. right about reuse in 
other work can be separated from the copyright (bu usually is not). and 
derivative works are treated slightly different in europe and the US 
(don't know about the rest of the world). in eu you have more control to 
what is done with your work when you give away copyright (dealing with 
some ethical aspects).
