With the Internet and advances in modern technology, many jobs are truly global in nature. But with communications and paperwork traveling across continents, someone needs to make sure we're all speaking the same language.

These workers provide translations from one language to another either in the form of written documents or live spoken word. Obvious requirements include learning multiple languages and being certified to provide accurate depictments of what is being said. When business deals or court cases rely on credible and accurate accounts, a qualified translator is invaluable to the proceedings.

For that reason and more, the BLS expects nearly 25,000 new jobs to open up in this field by 2020.
