My wife's gotten some raises over the last couple of years that's put her income comfortably high enough to support both of us. In addition we've saved up a decent amount in retirement.

I hate my job, and want to quit, and just pick up doc review projects here and there to fill my time. Ideally doing doc review maybe 1/2 the year. I know Japanese kinda, if that helps.

I hear from people on the 'language circuit' that the requirements are uneven. For French, you need adequate. For Russian, you need good to great. The consensus seems to be that for Japanese, native speakers only need apply.

Yea, I get you. I did do 1 Japanese project a long time ago, but also was disqualified for one.

Japanese doc review no longer exists in the Bay Area. The biggest projects ended and moved to DC.

FCPA foreign language in general is on decline due to the pilot program that was extended through 2017.

monkeys finding unsavory documents made it hard for law firms to defend their case so the rules had to change haha
