In the past year there were 4,982 books published in English that were originally written in a foreign language. Sound like a lot? That is only 3% of the total books published in the US (the US publishes nearly 300,000 books per year).
Why do you think US publishers don’t publish foreign language translations here in the United States? Have you ever read a book that has been translated or one in a foreign language?
