I have been working at this place for three years i have a manager and two people that i trained and hired. Everything that leaves the office goes through me, and i am my boss when she's not around. Well a new position became available and she recommended the girl i trained to get the job. I asked why and if i'm lacking in work, or anything and she told me that i am an exceptional worker. The girl that i trained cried and told me that i was amazing and she didn't understand why my boss didn't recommend me. Also about a month ago I was asked to translate something in Spanish because i am the only hispanic in my dept. I said yes but that i needed to be compensated because that is not in my job description and translating documents into another language is a skill. - I don't know what to do is it me? What am i doing wrong

Doesn't sound like you did anything wrong to not get it. Sometimes managers see potential in other people, but I'm not quite sure as to why you didn't get it. I say be happy that the person you trained got to move up but also if you aren't moving up with that company maybe it's best that you look for another job where they will appreciate what you bring to the company and to move up.
