Should I delete a language pair?

I am considering deleting one language pair. (English to Spanish) I am a native English speaker, so when I translate, I stick with Spanish to English. However, I am mainly a consecutive interpreter, so I think it would make at least some sense to keep this pair in my profile.

The majority of jobs posted here are for translating, so I doubt it would make much of a difference if I had only one language pair in my profile. Who knows? Taking out the English to Spanish pair might make my profile look better to potential clients. It could also hurt my chances, especially if I am applying to only be an interpreter.

Sara,
Do you know that you can specify the services you offer for each and every language pair separately?
Interpreting services are also selectable, so you can mark the interpretation boxes for English-Spanish and deselect the translation services.

I followed your suggestion. I did know that I can do it--I just forgot about it.
