    Using translation of PD text?

    I'm looking to use an ancient text in a choral work. Of course the text is in public domain, but I'm not sure about the translation. Do I need to get permission from the translator to use the text?

    Thanks,
    chris.

    Assuming the translation is copyrighted, yes.

    If you can find a translation that is more than 70 years old, you're probably safe...
