I’d like to edit my profile but I want to make sure it is permitted and make sure I am not penalized.
For example, my title is: Translator and Transcriptor.
I haven’t done much transcription work for approximately 2 years on the site and would rather modify Transcriptor to Proofreader.
Before doing so I want to make sure this has no impact on my account and in particular my ranking on site. I have many reviews on my profile in regards to transcription. I would like to make sure that I don’t lose these reviews and that there is no negative impact for me, can you confirm if this is correct?
It shouldn't affect anything that's already been done.
However, rather than changing everything as a whole, Upwork now allows you to create specialized profiles (up to 2 at this time, I believe). You could tailor one for transcription, and another for proofreading. They would both be specific whatever you put in them, and you chose what portfolio items are included. When submitting a proposal, you then have the opportunity to specify which specialized profile the client will see.
Thank you for your answer.
I don't want to continue my transcription activities. I'd only like to edit my title, replace "transcriptor" by "proofreader" and maybe edit the description part.
Can I want to add two more titles to my profile main title? I mean my profile title is ''Bookkeeping & Accounting''
I want to add two more titles are “Business Writing / Social Media Management"
So, it will become “Bookkeeping & Accounting / Business Writing / Social Media Management"
That is it,
Because I have specialized profile! And I have done projects for specialized profile also.
