    Approach a travel company or business looking for translators.

    You will get paid to go on holidays and translate some stuff :)

    See if theres some sort of equivalent of clickbank.

    Rewrite the best sellers in your language.

    Get some clickbank marketing experts on a JV. Get their help with setting up as an author - either that or do it yourself.

    Have affiliates work selling your ebooks - or again - do it yourself if you want.

    I'd look into getting into the human trafficking business.

    Seriously I would look into translating stuff for Chinese companies into English. There is serious demand for that and a real shortage of fluent English writers available to Chinese companies.

    try italki.com ive got chinese lessons from their for my son, they were only €3 an hour one on one though (great by the way).....or maybe you could find some kind of software that allows you to give group session to 10 people at once, set up your own site offer the service,mail out pdf docs to go with the course, after a while you could have peeps signing up for 10 classes at once if your service is any good

    You could be translating Chinese stores who do worlwide free shipping. I saw a lot of those shops who have bad quality in English.

    Be the middle man between Westerners with e-commerce sites and Chinese drop shippers.
