We probably all agree, that the name of the tranlator is an important information. But amazon generally does not mention it, nor does wikipedia! Should we do something about it?

Amazon may add it if you ask Jul 30, 2011

I translated a novel sold by amazon and was not credited. I contacted them supplied details they ask for, and am now credited there as the translator.
