Well, I really think that the translator has a huge amount of work to do on
the text, so why not give him a real <translator> tag ?
For example, I'm in France, and I try not to read translated books, but
anyway, on these translated books, the name of the translator is right below
the name of the author (with a smaller font however ;-)

I believe (I may be wrong though) that since the people in charge of this
are English speaking people, they have not been confronted with translation
work or even have not read any translated document. So maybe it's a question
you've never even asked yourself ?

I think I'm going to fill the request there ;-)
