Having the ability to speak 2 or more languages fluently is a real asset in today’s modern world. If you have a Bachelors Degree in a foreign language or International Relations (or even International Business), this is even more of an asset as you can work as a translator or interpreter on a full-time, part-time or freelance basis.
Translators work on written text while interpreters convert spoken or sign language into another language. Many translators even work from home so this is ideal for mothers or those who are not fans of commuting.
