Say if someone wish to translate a book from O'Reilly from, for example, English to Japanese.
Publishing would surely cause copyright problems.
Therefore, could such actions like translation to be carried out by someone less than professional, in a way, recognised. If so, could the translated work also be publish under any circumstance(i.e. endorsed by the original text creator)?
How should one proceed?

Apparently there is not a simple answer address translation other than reference to copyright.com, or if that is all it needs to gain permission to translate a *full* book?
