Does anyone work in Publishing?

I've seen a children's book that isn't published in the UK and I think it would do really well here - I would certainly like to buy it and read an English translation. The parent publishing house (European) has a few publishing arms (is that the correct terminology?) that deal with different genres and from what I can see they mainly publish authors from the country that it's based in.
What is the best way to go about trying to make this happen. Do you just approach a children's publisher in the UK and say there might be a demand for it? If so, who do you contact? Or do you approach the European publishing house and say that there could be a market for an English print run? I'm sure they've thought of this and maybe it's in hand but even so behind the scenes. I contacted the author who says no plans for that at the moment but maybe they're waiting to see how it sells there first - just come out.
What do you think?
