Contract name change

Is it okay to set a contract name that is different from the job itself?

For instance, I'm a translator, been also working on Music Production with a repeat client here.

Is is okay if I ask my client to set the contract name as "Arabic Translation" for example, where it's not a translation project? (It's a music production project or other type of projects).

The goal is to have a series of feedback and reviews to translation projects, is that against Upwork's terms of use?

Please I need an expert's advice!

Thanks,

it depend on the client 

some one will accept that and do it for you but others (majority) can refuse and may flag you as inappropriate and this will be bad for you 

my advice is to make another specialized profile with the skills you have so you will have two feedback for two different skills

Let's see. You are asking if it is OK for you to ask your client to lie and for you to build a fake profile by falsely naming a contract something it isn't with the purpose of deceiving future clients?

 

Think about it for a minute... Does that sound OK to you?
