This is pretty cool. It's an index of several million book translations that have been published, and allows you to view origin language, target language, frequency, author...
I'm currently viewing languages by number of translations out of them, and there's some real oddities: Swedish is the starting point for more translations than Japanese, Chinese or Portuguese; there are more books translated from Estonian than from Persian; Hindi is outdone by Icelandic.
