this FAQ should answer your question: FAQ#What_is_a_derivative_work.3F

or you can enjoy reading the Legal Code and see the last para of clause 3:

"The above rights may be exercised in all media and formats whether now known or hereafter devised. The above rights include the right to make such modifications as are technically necessary to exercise the rights in other media and formats. All rights not expressly granted by Licensor are hereby reserved."

hope that answers your question.

Do the ND licenses permit transcoding -- turning one format of a work into
another format?

If so, what are the applicable restrictions?

Is there a FAQ on this issue? If so, where is this FAQ?

Thanks for any help on this issue.

On another related note, I tried searching the cc-licenses archive for
this but the site makes that particularly difficult to

- There is no way to download the entire mailing list as one file (one
must download the list broken into compressed monthly chunks then
concatenate them and search that),

- there is no search engine that indexes the mailing list data (Google is
the chosen indexer for the site but it doesn't see the mailing list
archives so Google doesn't find mailing list hits),

- there is a lot of data to go through and an expectation one will read
archives before posting (which would be sensible if it were easy to do
said search).
