I really liked a particular course which was only available in a non-English language for a topic that doesn't have too many good quality courses in English. I was wondering if it is allowed according to Udemy rules to partner with an existing instructor and to translate the course and associated material to English (including voiceovers) and publish it as a separate course. I was thinking of using the co-instructor route.
Has anyone done something similar? Any pro and cons I should be aware of? Just want to check before reaching out the the instructor of that course.
Thanks for any suggestion!
(Edited to remove a wrong assumption from my side:)
The idea itself is very good. Partnerships are great. But for sure, what you need is a partner that is a subject expert and not just a great speaker. A voice-over artist is non-authentic and many students flock to Udemy because of the authenticity of being taught by real world subject experts.

I thought it was forbidden and it probably was until not so long ago when I looked it up, but apparently it is allowed (which opens up a lot of doors I guess for those who want to expand to new markets). I looked it up on the instructor community:
