>Is translation considered a derivative work?
Yes , translation is a derivative work in the US.

"A 'derivative work' is a work based upon one or more preexisting works,
such as a* translation*, musical arrangement, dramatization,
fictionalization, motion picture version, sound recording, art reproduction,
abridgment, condensation, or any other form in which a work may be recast,
