Translation and Licensing Guidelines
Translation and Printing of Resources
The Center for Mission Mobilization (CMM) seeks to engage, equip, and connect every believer, worldwide, to their most strategic role in taking the gospel to all peoples. In working to see this mission realized, the CMM produces mobilization and support raising resources. The CMM desires to share these resources in a way that honors the author’s work and benefits the mobilization efforts of other ministries. As such, the CMM allows for the translation and printing of resources based on agreed upon terms.
If you would like to translate and distribute any of our resources, we want to work with you to produce digital and printable versions, often with little or no royalties. We have translation templates available in Microsoft Word to simplify the translation process. Professional high-resolution files will be provided for high-quality printing of an agreed-upon number of copies.
Any translation or printing of a CMM resource (including Weave and Support Raising Solutions) should only be done once a License Agreement has been given by the CMM.
Steps towards translation and printing:
Step 1 – Submit an Application
Step 2 – Provide additional information, if requested from CMM after reviewing application
Step 3 – Once approved, sign and submit License Agreement
Step 4 – Receive translation or print files
