There is no free lunch.
and which language has had the most sucess in gaining a higher income annualy?
In other words: what's the easiest way (relatively speaking) to make as much money as possible?
Things a not that simple, I'm afraid.
May I suggest you take some time to study the vast amounts of experience available in these forums, perhaps searching for the key words of specialisation, gain experience and marketing.
Good luck, and best regards,

A valuable source of information on your question is Simon Turner's tariffometer at: http://www.tariffometro.it/
It's in Italian (and euros) but should be intelligible to anyone with linguistic ambitions.
Of course, the rates quoted need to be multiplied by daily / weekly / annual output (you'll find discussions on these forums suggesting anything between 1,500 and 5,000 or more words per day) and then you need to allow for "resting", marketing, training, administration and maybe even holidays!
Best of luck.
