Mandarin is more valuable.
Mandarin translators get paid more money.
Spanish translators get paid way less.
Because there are a lot of Native bilingual Spics hordes who work for peanuts and are a dime a dozen.
Competent Mandarin-English bilinguals are rare.
Chinks who know English (living in HongKong, USA, Canada, Australia) are mostly Cantonese speakers who suck at Mandarin.
Most Mandarin native speakers suck at English (unlike Cantonese natives) just like native Japanese speakers.
So the demand for Mandarin and Japanese translators is very high.
The demand for Cantonese speakers not so much (because Cantonese speakers know English well, but not Mandarin well)
