Inappropriate Job Posting, means what?

What does it mean to be declined by a client because of "Inappropriate job posting"? even if I did write something inappropriate in the proposal (which is not the case here) shouldn`t it say for example "inappropriate proposal" ?

Marwa, it means Upwork removed the job because it violates Upwork rules. It's a poorly written error message that Upwork ought to change but hasn't.

 She didn't post anything. She applied to a job which was subsequently taken down by Upwork as being inappropriate.

 It was NOT her proposal that was inappropriate, it was the client and / or the job posting so Upwork ended the proposal and took the Job Posting down and / or took action against the client.

Nothing unusual Isaac, It was a translation job and I talked about my experience in this field, how I handled similar projects, and my skills, and it was said in a formal way as usual, no chance here for anything inappropriate.

Dead right. I got one of those messages too; first I checked all my messages for unintentional smut, then I started to worry that the client wanted me to write pornos. It really SHOULD be reworded; very misleading for Newbies.
