What fields do you think are the most advisable to specialize in? I have a great level of Japanese, can read and understand it nearly as I read English or Spanish, but as yet I have not specialized in any specific field (except videogames which I have played in Japanese for almost ten years)?
I think economy/business would do for the amount of work it would give me. But are other fields as medicine or legal advisable? What technical fields are most demanded?
On the other hand, I would like to include some sample translations on my web page (to show the quality and characteristics of the results)... Is there any place where one can get free non-copyrighted technical texts in Japanese? I have searched hundreds of webpages and is of no use.
Thanks in advance.

Why are you looking for the most popular fields?
You are a translator in other pairs and you specialize in some fields. So you must know them pretty well to be able to provide adequate translations. It should have taken a lot of your effort. Then why do you want to re-specialize instead of covering what you already know but in a new pair?
