Diana,

 

If I was paid a penny for every rejection I have had on Upwork (oDesk), I would be a rich woman.

 

I think your profile needs a little tidying up - more than I am going to say here. But three things stand out which I think you should correct: Line 1 delete the first 'experience' - 'diverse diversified experience' is enough.

Line 4 - remove the brackets round 'basic' it puts too much emphasis on 'basic'.

Line 5 - capitalize the lower case 'i'.

 

For your translation skills (forgive me if I am wrong), I suspect you would have very strong competition with French-English-French, and I think I would remove this as part of your offer until you have passed a couple more tests. I would also remove the Swahili-English-Swahili, unless you can add some experience as a translator in this language pair to your overview.  Perhaps you could add a translation that you have done to your portfolio.
