6. Translator

Median annual salary: $41,793

Although transcriptionists might feel like they're looking at a foreign language sometimes with all the medical terminology, translators actually do deal in different languages.

Translators must correctly interpret speech or text from one lanuage to another, while maintaining its accuracy and original meaning. Although some interpreters may get called in to court to translate for a witness or defendant who speaks another language, much of the work can often be done at home as many translators are self-employed.
