When most Leanpub authors want to publish a translation of one of their books, they create a new book themselves. This means they are the primary author of the new book (when you create a book yourself, you are automatically the primary author).

Next, they add the translator as a co-author. That way, the book will appear on both the primary author's Leanpub profile page, and on the translator's Leanpub profile page.

After you create a new book, you can indicate it is a translation of another Leanpub book by going to the "About" page for the new book here:
