I would like to take American sports news from sources (such as, Foxsports, etc.) and translate them into French for a website that does breaking American Sports news but in the French language.

How can I legally and correctly do this?

Thank you in advance for your time and help

Also, would any of the above fall under the Fair Use or Creative Commons Licenses?

To qualify as "Fair Use", your use would, among other things, need to be "transformative". Using a news article to create a news article is not "transformative"; you wouldn't have changed the purpose, form, or useage. Also, if you have any ads on the site to which you are proposing to post your translated scrapes, the "commercial" use would strongly argue against your use being "Fair".

"Creative Commons" is, to my understanding, something that the origitators / creators of content can choose to use. Scrapers don't get to claim, unilaterally, that it applies. Sorry.

This is definitely not correct but it is really hard to pinpoint this thing unless the same website is running a french version.

A very good question from Malvaqlio - To make it legal - ask permission from the sources and its authors and give credit the sources and the author/s by mentioning the original sources, language they were first published and the original authors. Why? Even though you will translate them into French language or other languages still you plagiarized the IDEA/s of those sports news. 

I quoted some lines about plagiarism:

Stanford sees plagiarism as “use, without giving reasonable and appropriate credit to or acknowledging the author or source, of another person's original work, whether such work is made up of code, formulas, ideas, language, research, strategies, writing or other form”. 

Yale views plagiarism as “the use of another’s work, words, or ideas without attribution” which included “using a source’s language without quoting, using information from a source without attribution, and paraphrasing a source in a form that stays too close to the original”.

Princeton perceives plagiarism as the deliberate use of “someone else’s language, ideas, or other original (not common-knowledge) material without acknowledging its source”. 

Oxford characterizes plagiarism as the use of “a writer's ideas or phraseology without giving due credit”.

 And Brown explains plagiarism to be “appropriating another person's ideas or words (spoken or written) without attributing those word or ideas to their true source”.

Dream big and don't stop without giving it a chance to come true.
