Free translation sample

Hello community,

 

I am new at Upwork and I was just wondering if it's normal for a client to ask for a free sample, e.g. the first two pages of the whole workload, and then disappear without any further remark on the provided sample? (In the chat it says "Job has been cancelled.")

Isn't that kind of rude to just cancel the job instead of declining properly and saying thanks for your work, but I've chosen someone else? After all, I have translated close to 900 words for free. She could have at least told me if my work was good or not.

 

By the way, she was the one who contacted me in the first place, not the other way round. And she's a bestselling author (I did some Google research on her name) - who would have thought?
