    I can't get a formal qualification.

    And, i don't want to do something that is so much heavy like translation/interpretation?


    Any other suggestion?
    Why not?

    There are language ability tests for most mainstream languages.

    Echo others, and would add tutoring, localisation services for websites/businesses, applying to the civil service in some form of intelligence role etc..

    Trust me, its NOT a heavy job. I used to work at a translation agency for public services. There are quite a few people who are freelance as they can turn work down, its pretty flexible.
