Translations]]''' of original texts
#'''Historical documents''' of national or international interest

Some basic criteria for texts '''excluded''' from Wikisource are:
#'''Original writings''' by a contributor to the project

These are just the most basic, obvious things that are excluded from Wikisource. There may of course be other things excluded by policy or convention.
