Hi. Can you pls. tell us in which language it is written and where it was published the first time in this form? Also the license (public domain yes or not) is necessary. Thank you and @Jusjih: pls can you have a look here? Cheers -jkb- (talk) 14:27, 14 May 2022 (UTC)

Eyagi (talk) 07:32, 18 May 2022 (UTC)Thank you for your reply. The written language is English. The content is a compilation of existing public materials unified into English. Title is "Collection of Imperial Japanese Military Comfort Station Regulation". This is the first time to post.unsigned comment by 11:44 (talk) User:Eyagi.

Hi Eyagi, I'm afraid I have no good news for you. You write it is a compilation text (I guess translated from Japanese). Well we have both Japanese and English Wikisources here, it would normally be the place for it. BUT, We must have a source for every text, and more over, we do not publish texts never published before. Shortly: most probably out of scope for Wikisource. Bur let us wait if somebody have another idea. Cheers -jkb- (talk) 09:44, 15 May 2022 (UTC)

Eyagi (talk) 23:54, 16 May 2022 (UTC)Is it because of concerns about mistranslation? The content of the English translation of the Japanese text and the original English text are similar and there is no contradiction between them. The comfort women issue is now the subject of international controversy, and I believe such primary sources useful for English-speaking people.
