Well done on such an informative site. It has been on my 'favourites' list for over a year now.
I have signed myself up for an online postgraduate translation course, which is something I have been wanting to do for years. However, I have been trying to research the job prospects for a German to English translator and finding it very hard to gauge if there is enough work to make a living wage. Also, I am wondering with the rapid pace and improvement in machine translation, is there a chance I might be obsolete after all my hard work and expense?!!
I know these are difficult questions to answer and it is really only your educated opinion as someone who is working in the industry,that I am after.
