I have an article in the current issue of Broadsheet, the ezine of Broad Universe, about fantasy writers in Spain. They face problems, but perhaps not the problems you would expect.
Read it at:http://www.broaduniverse.org/broadsheet-archive/castles-in-spain-fantasy-writers-and-publishers-have-high-hopes-march-2012-bs-s
And here's some more information about languages and writing. In Spain in 2011, almost 22% of the books published were translations, and of those 47% were translated from English. But in English-language books published worldwide, only 8% of the books were translated from another language.
