I was talking about importing copies, not publishing your own. Commissioning a translation is indeed still legal, though, you just can't republish without the copyright owner's permission.

Hmm, you mean if you employ a translator to "convert" a copy you own for your own use as you can't read the source? No-one would ever, ever go after you for such a thing but technically it is illegal under international copyright law. Pick up a paperback you have to hand and in the frontispieces you'll see something such as:
Copyright <some year or other>. All rights reserved. No portion of this publication may be reproduced in any manner or any form without the written permission of the publisher.
So you'll just have to send that Slovakian girl you employed to give you better versions of Dostoevsky back home, unless you have other uses for her than book learnin'...
