Who is/are the translator(s)? May 31, 2010

Maybe I missed something, but I didn't see the name(s) of the translator(s) in the article. If the translations have been so successful, they certainly do deserve at least a mention, if not more. Does anyone know who they are?

Literature and translation Jun 1, 2010

I do wonder if their works were not translated and published in other languages, what would be the chances of their authors ever winning a Nobel Prize for Literature or any other awards for that matter?
