From a legal point of view, it's untenable. Somebody relies on the
English language translation. They get sued because the Chinese language
version says something different. They reply "But you said that they're
the same". YATeam replies that the Chinese language version is the real
license and overrides anything the English language version says.
No. The proper way is "I cut the cake, you pick the piece." Or in
context, YATeam allows the defendant to choose whichever language
version they want. YATeam then has all the incentive needed to make the
licenses have the same effect, and if they haven't, the defendant can
choose the version most beneficial to their case. If YATeam doesn't like
that, well, they should have worked harder.
We went through this with a European Union license, where they wanted
the license to have effect in different languages.
