Another important and helpful backwards-directed initiative could be to start reading, teaching, commenting, studying already published work from philosopher of underrepresented works. I think it has become unavoidable to expect professional philosophers to be able to work and publish in a different language than their own. I find it completely astounding that American universities, for example, would still hire mono-lingual philosophers or philosophers who only publish in English. Also, Academic presses should do a better job of publishing translations of philosophical work from underrepresented traditions.
