It's probably going to equate to a 3-year college degree in the US. You would need 3-years of professional experience to get the 4th year that you need for an H-1B.

Send it to a professional credentials evaluator to determine that. The job must require a bachelor's degree and many translation jobs do not require a bachelor's

The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
