The languages spoken by Colorado residents vary. Some of the most prominent are Chinese, Spanish, and Filipino. Translators that are proficient in the languages below will have no trouble finding great positions that really benefit the community.
- Chinese - Asian demographics in the Colorado region have increased, and with that have come numerous Chinese immigrants and U.S. citizens of Chinese descent. The need for Chinese interpreters and translators is rapidly increasing.
- Spanish - Spanish interpreters and translators will find plenty of work in Colorado, and more so in heavily populated Hispanic concentration areas such as Denver.

If you compound that with recent immigration and the rise in the tourism and travel industry, you can see that Spanish interpreters are a valuable commodity.
