Where should I try and publish a literary translation?

I translated a short story into English a little while ago, and now I'm trying (with the author's enthusiastic consent) to find appropriate places to submit it for publication in English. I have some idea of what the options are for trying to publish straight-up English creative writing (duotrope.com! a splendid resource, but sadly doesn't seem to deal with translations at all), but I don't know whether it's best to submit a translated story to a regular (perhaps genre-appropriate?) journal, since some of them accept translations, or to look for publications specializing in literary translations.
Any reason to focus on one over the other? Recommendations for specific journals? All input very much appreciated!
