My theory is that there is a vicious cycle working against the publication of translations, which results in a state of economic censorship. It costs around $25,000 to publish a book. For a work in translation that figure is closer to $35,000. So before even coming out with a book, publishers are spending an additional $10,000 to do a work in translation.
