It is a long time since I made these files and the whole package is now
maintained by others. However, I managed to find other files. As a matter
of fact, cspsfont.doc does not contain any license at all. I have GPL
version 2, June 1991 in the same directory. Probably I chose it because
authors of other parts of CSTeX used it. The installation script,
cspsfont.ins, does not contain any license either. Thus the message is the
default from docstrip because I did not redefine it.

As far as translation is concern, I do not think that it would be
appreciated. I liked the tool 11 years ago when I created because
development was easier for me than studying fontinst. I am afraid that
translation of this obsolete tool is just waisting time and the only
meaningful solution is to change the copyright of generated files.
