Normally you can only become an interpreter from other languages towards your native language, not to other languages. Maybe there are exceptions, but this is the rule, at least it was when I studied (went to an interpreters’ school in Brussels). Don’t forget that this is oral translation, you have to translate at the same speed as the person is speaking, and that can be pretty fast!
