Hello,

I have been on Upwork for almost a year. Unfortunately, when I try to make an offer, I see that more and more clients are hiring only Asian Freelancers.I guess this happens due to their low hourly payment.

How do you cope with it? Any ideas?

Asian freelancers are bidding and winning Greek translation projects? Doubtful. 

 

Stick to projects you do well and where there are fewer competitors.

It looks like you've been doing projects for $5, $8, $10, so I guarantee you that other freelancers are wondering how to compete with you as well. Would you like it if other people told you what you should charge?
