Suppose, one person thinks it will benefit Chinese people a lot by translating an American book to Chinese, then publish it in China. How to make this happen?

I suppose you have to contact the book publisher of the American book for authorization, you have to find a Chinese publisher. For people without any prior connection or experience, I'd like to hear any suggestions or similar stories of getting this done.
I suppose, any one person can just start translating the book and show it to people he knows, to test if the translation and the content of the book has any potential of being a hit book. Is this day dreaming?
