Who gets translated?

Perhaps because I’ve been working with a translator every day for a little more than a year now, I found this post interesting. I also have a couple of friends who have had books translated into languages other than English. But I had no idea there was such disparity between men and women when it comes to translating books and poetry. It didn’t surprise me that, on average, far more male  than female authors get their work translated.
