If I want to be a translator, and English is my native language, which language or languages would be best to learn in order to make the highest income?
For example, I hear the "FIGS" languages are not so great for this purpose... far too many English speakers learn French, Italian, German and Spanish, so there is too much competition to make good money translating these languages into English.
