I can speak multiple languages including Japanese, Chinese, Russian and Korean. Unfortunatly European languages such a German and French are difficult for me as I see the words and want to pronounce them in the American English way.

I am self employed as I translate business documents between languages on a contract basis.
And those skills aren't in demand in the US?
