Enthusiastic readers within and outside the publishing industry have lamented the paucity of international literature translated into English. Despite the widely held belief that translated literature does not sell, small presses and literary organizations have emerged over the past decade to take the lead in advocating for more translated literature and more recognition for translators.Drawing on media coverage and industry panels over the past five years as well as the recent success of translated titles by Clarice Lispector, Valeria Luiselli, and Elena Ferrante, this paper investigates the emerging visibility of translators and identifies opportunities to harness and elevate that visibility in developing a readership for translated literature.
