As it says on the wiki <>, Rosetta is 
not yet Free Software, but it "will probably become open source 
somewhere in the future". So it comes down to whether you trust 
Canonical to release the Rosetta source code when it's ready. I trust 
them, but then I work for them, so what would I know.

(Note: I don't speak for Canonical, and they don't speak for me.)
