Does anyone know of any good resources for historical translations? I have not come across any and I would appreciate a pointer in the right direction. Thanks.

I'm not clear whether you mean translations of old documents or translations about historical events.
I sometimes explore old dictionaries to check older usage of the German language. There are lots of useful encyclopedias online when it comes to reading up on historical background.
Can you maybe pinpoint the type of resources you are looking for?
All the best, Deborah

I am looking for organizations that usually hire translators for historical translations, both historical documents and events. I just haven't come across much of that.
I would also like to do translation of literature, but I don't think there is too much German or Austrian literature that hasn't already been translated into English or vice versa. Does that sort of thing go directly through the publishing company?

I don't know whether this is of help for you but you might give it a try: http://www.pgdp.net/c/default.php
They don't have publishers there but lots of literature of all kinds, maybe you could find some book which has not yet been translated (though, unfortunately, German books are quite rare there).
Another possibility (similar to DP) could be
Proofreading can be very interesting (and great fun, too!) and you get an idea of what is "on the market".
