I've published two fantasy novels in Iceland and I'm fighting to get the third one released this fall, but I really want to reach the foreign market. I'm considering my options, one of which is to either pay for an English-language translation or do the whole thing myself and just pay for a proofreading and e-publishing on Amazon.

E-publishing hasn't really taken off in this country so I don't know much about it but it has been recommended to me as a decent option for struggling writers. Is it, really? Does it have a chance to reach more than a few hundred or is an e-book by an unknown doomed to obscurity?
