I translated the adventure The Haunting of Call of Cthulhu for my native language (Portuguese of Brazil) changed the pictures and plan to do a module for the same, is there a copyright issue to publish that version translated here in the forum?

Despite my limitations programming'm thinking of translating the Ruleset for my native language and create an extension for the same, there is no problem to do this or is there?

Yes, there is absolutely a copyright issue. This product is covered by copyright and translating the material to Portuguese doesn't remove the copyright.

Any translation that you do would require that you provided the translated language strings and resources in an extension, not the whole ruleset.

There is a community translation project ongoing (I'm not sure how active it is currently). Details here: http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?27202-LanguagePak-(LPak)-Community-Project-Program Post #3 contains the Call of Cthulhu resource archive (at the time of posting).

So the translation would be best to speak to Chaosium?
Trenloe I had seen this information, but I realized that nowhere has cited the Portuguese of Brazil

They're looking for contributors for all languages that FG can support. Get involved with the translation program and start the Portuguese translation effort going! :)

Understood Trenloe I will send an email once you finish the settings here.
Thanks for the help and as the translation project will take a look, I know there is a topic of how to proceed in FG forum.
