There is a difference between the license and the copyright. Your work 
can be licensed under the Apache License, but you keep the copyright.

Only software and documentation distributed by the Apache Software 
Foundation is copyrighted by the Foundation. And to be more precise, 
each contributor keeps his individual copyright (in some countries like 
France you cannot give away your copyright), and this is the whole 
product that is copyrighted by the ASF.

Your work however is a mix of original work (good job!) and translations 
of the original Cocoon documentation. For these translations, I think 
you did the right thing, by linking to the original documentation as a 
form of attribution.
