Translator Jobs for foreign language professionals

...Here's a list of translator jobs put forward by respected and legitimate companies... the best part?  Most of them will let you telecommute!

If you have a college degree and you are bilingual, then you may just want to think about becoming a language translator. 

Many of them are work at home jobs which make them even more attractive for many people, especially for those who are looking to bring in a second income or for those who just want a little part time job that will help them bring in some extra money.

With the increase in telecommunications worldwide, translation jobs are no longer limited to certain countries. 

While English to Spanish translators are still in high demand, now there is also a need for Mandarin/or Cantonese translators, Japanese, German, Arabic translators and the list goes on. 

Bet you never thought that being bilingual was such a big asset!

Check out the companies below for more information on translator jobs.  Remember that they may not all be hiring right now but don't let that deter you from going through the list and applying with the companies that have openings, then just sit back and watch what happens!
