I am afraid you will probably continue to need words, though!
Depends a lot on what your skills are. You could consider necoming a technical writer (still involves words), or maybe doing DTP work (involves words, but you don't have to come up with them), or teaching your language (still have to deal with those pesky words, darn it!).

Becoming a (very silent) taxi driver might be my choice.
