I want to translate a writer who has been dead since 1950, so it's very close to 70 years (which is the duration of copyright in his country)

How difficult could it be to obtain all the rights etc.? The writer is not famous anywhere except his native country, so it's not like people are fighting to translate him.

I have no official training in translating, or the language I want to translate from, no relevant experience etc. etc. Would it be possible for me to obtain the rights, or should I even not bother trying, at least not for the next 6-7 years?
