NHF encourages redistribution of its publications for educational purposes by other nonprofit bleeding disorders organizations. NHF produced materials, either printed publications or website content, cannot be translated or reproduced in whole or in part without prior written permission from NHF. NHF discourages translations of portions of publications or content, as context is often crucial, but will consider these permission requests on a case by case basis.
To obtain permission to reprint, redistribute, or translate NHF content, please contact HANDI, NHF's Information Resource Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Organizations or individuals interested in translating NHF materials must review the full policy details in this document and agree to its terms, then provide the NHF’s Translation Review Committee with:
- Name of the organization and primary contact requesting permission
- Title of the publication or web content to be translated
- Detail on how many copies will be distributed and to whom, and/or how web content will be promoted/shared
- Whether copies of the publication will be sold, or if web content accessible for a fee
- How the project is being funded
- Who will be reviewing the translation for accuracy and contextual meaning
Once the NHF receives the written request a decision to grant permission will be made and the applicant will be notified in via email.
It should be noted that receiving permissions to translate and/or reprint any NHF publications or other NHF web-based materials does not extend to the production, in whole or in part, for sale or for use in conjunction with commercial purposes. All NHF content usage should adhere to NHF’s Trademark Policy specifically pertaining to use of NHF’s logo.
NHF Use of Translated Materials
The organization seeking permission to translate an NHF resource must grant the NHF reciprocal permission to reproduce the translated edition in print and/or on its website. They must provide 1 electronic and 2 print copies of the final translated resource to the NHF.
Expert Review of Translations
Organizations are encouraged to have translations reviewed by local experts prior to publication to ensure that the translation, especially of medical terms and procedures, is correct and the meaning of the original English edition has not been changed.
Acknowledging NHF and Original Sponsors in the Translated Materials
Permission to translate, if granted, is contingent on acknowledgement of NHF as the original publisher of the material and holder of the copyright. NHF will specify the precise language and placement of this acknowledgement in the letter of permission. In cases where the original NHF edition is sponsored, the sponsor must be acknowledged in any subsequent translations and reproductions. NHF will specify the precise language and placement of this acknowledgement in the letter of permission. Any NHF logo(s) used in the original publication are required for any approved translated versions.
Acknowledging Sponsors and/or Funders of Translated Materials
If the translation or reprinting of the publication is funded by a pharmaceutical company or other organization, NHF will specify the precise language and placement thereof, through which this may be acknowledged in the letter of permission. Please note that sponsors may NOT be acknowledged on the outside front cover. Sponsor logos may NOT appear anywhere on the resource.
Sample Acknowledgement Language
Standard language typically includes “This publication was originally produced by the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) with support from [insert funder]. It was translated, with permission from NHF, for use by [insert organization name] with support from [insert funder]. The translation is solely the responsibility of [insert organization name].” However, once permission is granted, this language is tailored for each publication by NHF. Organizations agree to share their version with approved language and layout for final review by NHF.
