Ok, see I thought that it was a group of people that sat around a table in a group somewhere in Italy and just translated the bible all day. Kinda what you see in the movies and the old days :o.
Nope sorry :)
Okay, returning to your original post biblical translation is not (strictly speaking) the job of theologians (such people are normally referred to as scripture scholars) but that aside, should you have a burning desire to become one you'll first need a relevant undergraduate degree which includes scripture studies (for example a Bachelor of Theology or similar) you'd the have to do an advanced degree and ultimately a doctorate in scripture ideally somewhere like the Ecole Biblique in Jerusalem. Oh and you'll also need to become proficient in Ancient Greek, Hebrew and Latin! After that you can look forward to a (not so lucrative) career in university teaching, research and, of course, translating the bible!
On a slightly more serious note, I actually happen to quite enjoy scripture study although (sadly) am far from proficient in any of the above languages!
