I would recommend Manning or Packt for the English edition.

Manning has over the top marketing, and I occasional review books for 
them. I would be willing to work on this as a reviewer and can contact 
my editor, but don't think I can commit the time to doing the 
translation myself, particularly since I'm meticulous and will find 
things to nitpick about precision, flow, clarity, etc.. I've informally 
written a couple of math books and know how much work this is.

Packt is nice because they have very inexpensive yearly subscriptions 
that afford you access to all their books.  I use my Packt subscription 
all the time. They also do targeted marketing, so I frequently see their 
books advertised in my browser tabs.  Not sure how they are to work with 
as an author.

But, yes: don't put a down payment on a Chalet in the Swiss Alps just 
yet unless you were also an early bitcoin investor.

Rowland is one of the foremost Samba experts and would be the ideal 
candidate for this. Bonus: he can start telling people on the Samba list 
to "just read the book". Sales will go up. <:)
