This is covered in our IPR FAQ, see:


I have extracted the relevant section below. Please let me
know if you would like to go ahead and volunteer to translate
the HTML 4.0 spec, and I will then add you to the page.

5.7 Can I translate one of your specifications into another

A translation, like the annotated version above, is a derivative
work. We allow such derivative works to be created, reproduced, or
displayed if the following requirements are met:

1.Inform the W3C of your plan to translate our content and inform us
of when you've completed and published the translation. Such notice
should be sent to w3c-translators@w3.org and -- if possible -- the
W3C staff contact for the document.

2. Prominently disclose in the target language the following 3

  1. the original URL, the status of the document, and its
     original copyright notice as required by the W3C document
     copyright notice.

  2. that the normative version of the specification is the
     English version found at the W3C site. 

  3. that the translated document may contain errors from
     the translation. 

This disclosure should be made in a header and/or footer that wraps
the translated W3C specification. No semantic changes should be made
to any part of the W3C document including the STATUS, contributors,
or appendices. If comments or annotations are absolutely necessary
within the content of the specification, those
annotations must be clearly represented as such. (example) 

3. Agree: 

  1. to the redistribution terms of the W3C document
     copyright notice. Consequently, your translation may be
     republished by the W3C or other entities if it is done
     in compliance with the notice's terms. 

  2. that the W3C may rescind your right to publish or
     distribute the derivative work if the W3C finds that
     it leads to confusion regarding the original document's
     status or integrity.
