Hi Luca,

 

Unfortunately no, your profile information needs to be written in English. Once you start communicating with a client you can communicate in your native language. 
If you have any additional questions, let me know. Thank you.

I know the community language is English but where does it say in the ToS that the profile has to be in English?

Wouldn't Upwork headquarters want to know, about the way their international freelancers market themselves?

Hi Luca,

 

I apologize for the confusion. Please note that you should be able to include a German translation of your profile description written in English but I'll check with the team to double-confirm.

Thank you for the clarification!

I've got one more question. Do I have to translate everything from English into German or can my German bio be a bit longer?
