Hi all,

I've been thinking about what career I'd most like, one option being languages. Right now I'm studying German; obviously I already speak English, and have hopes to learn a 3rd language sometime down the road. ((This has all been "Hobby" so far.))

I'd like to know whats involved in this? How hard is the work, usually? How much does it pay? [in America, and in Germany?]

Thanks in advance =),

Hi Leigh,

Welcome to ProZ - I hope that your experience here will be as positive as mine has been.

For starters I would suggest searching the forums and reading what has already been said on this topic - enter "beginner" (without quotation marks), select the forum section "Getting established" in the forum search form and you should be able to find a ton of information and good suggestions (cf. http://www.proz.com/forumsearch ).

Good luck!
