Some professions are not so much a job as a vocation


Explicación:
Depends on the tone you want, but this is one possible way to go: relatively informal.

"Working for the RSPB is not so much a job as a vocation for many"
http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/career_and_jo...

"For long-serving career civil servants, as the more senior ones invariably are, the public service is not so much a job as a vocation: 'chosen for life'"
http://books.google.es/books?id=FHKmP7Mhn_gC&pg=PA113&lpg=PA...

"For me, being a scientist is not so much a job as a vocation, and so if you're not doing something you're enjoying, it's not worth doing".

Some have a higher calling. Ours is translation.


Explicación:
Even though it's not a literal translation, it's catchy because it has a divine ring to it.

A career can be a calling


Explicación:
ca- ca-...catchy?

And I hope it sounds like an introductory sentence, an invitation to read on:

Ours, of course, is translation.

And so on.

--------------------------------------------------

By ca- ca-, I don't mean caca (!), I mean 'career', 'calling', a catchy repetition of sounds.

and also 'can'

Reformulation (though I can see where the money's going on this question):

Some careers require a calling

Closer to the meaning, same attempt at 'catchiness'
