I need to change my country of residence from France to the UK. My bank account in a British one, I work for a British compagny, but as I'm currently in France, the system has set my country as France by default, and it was impossible to change it when I registered.
Is there a way to modify this?
This is by design.
You live in France.
You need to set your country of residence to France.
It is not Upwork's intention that the country of residence be a country that "you have a fondness for" or the "country where you have a bank account" or the "country that has offices for the company you work for." It is not Upwork's intention that the country of residence reflect your nationality or place of birth.
The country of residence is meant to show the "country in which you reside."
Upwork will not help you change "France" the the "UK" because you don't live in the UK. You live in France.
And the only service you are offering on your profile is English to French translation.
I would think you would be glad to identify yourself as a resident of France.

Try to cheer up if you can...
That's his "cheerful tone."
He's also right.
You're in France, so your profile's location has to be France.
