An example would be a Japanese company that needs to train their staff in Malaysia.
They could send all their staff to learn Japanese, but this would send their
costs into outer space. The logical path would be to translate their training
or technical manuals into English. That way, their cost is very much lowered.
If you have mastered multiple languages especially major world languages such
as Spanish, German, French, Russian, Chinese or Japanese, then you are fortunate
to be in an in-demand business. The advent of freelance websites and online job
postings has caused a flood of under-qualified translators to enter the arena,
but you will distinguish yourself from the amateurs with your proficiency, attention
to nuance and your ability to impart intended meanings, not just literal translations.
The responsibility is a great one though. What the staff learn very much depends
on your ability to translate as accurately as possible, but as many translator
will tell you, the rewards are an overload of assignments. Enough to keep them
making money every month!
