Translation Question

So let's say, hypothetically, that Expanded Horizons were to publish English translations of non-English language spec fic, by living authors who agree to this in writing, in a contract.

Let's assume that all the legalities of this are worked out.

(This is hypothetical!)

Is anyone familiar with how we could go about finding reliable translators (for the translation itself or for verifying the translation of someone else), and does anyone know what the going pay rate for such translations would be? I am familiar with using translation services only in contexts of non-fiction, e.g. professional or medical documents. Are fiction rates similar?

Thanks,
Dash
