From rom the legal page of launchpad (unfortunately, it's not published yet,
hope it's done soon):

Rosetta Copyright
All translations imported from external sources are owned by the
translator that made them. In general, these translations are licensed
under the same terms as the software for which they are a translation.

All translations submitted into Rosetta are the work of the translator
that created them, and are submitted under the same license as the
software being translated. In addition, the translator grants to
Canonical Ltd the right to publish the translation and use the
translation in other software packages under their license.
