Permissions clauses apply to any copyrightable material included in the work (illustrations, excerpts, etc.) that is not created by the author of the work. Often, the publisher of your translation will have acquired the rights for extraneous material in the author's work or have a warranty from the author that all of the material in the work is authorized and does not violate the rights of any third parties. Regardless, any copyright fees required for publication of the translation should be covered by the publisher.
