Qualification test

In my test session , I saw various test for translation from English to Spanish,Danish,Russian and other Europe

languages .Since  i do not any of languages mentioned  in the test other than English.Is  it necessary  to take test  for translation from English to Spanish,Danish etc?Please  remove the translation test from English to Spanish ,Danish,Russian,Dutch. Why i have to take test for translation  from English to Spanish,Brazilian, Danish, Portuguese's German.,Dutch?

There are still hundreds of tests you can take.

 

OF COURSE you don't need to take tests for things you do not and can not do. Just search for and choose the ones that apply to your set of skills.

You are not oblieged to pass tests in a language you do not speak at all. This is probably a bug. There are tests that are suggested to me that are only relevant for US freelancers. Therefore I ignore them. Maybe I get less invites because of that.

Hi Radhika,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of the session you are referring to? I can confirm Petra's reply.

Hi Radhika,

 

I presume the list appears once you search the available skill tests by using a certain keyword or chose a category from the drop-down menu? It is by design to list all of those tests as they are relevant to the keyword/skill category used.

Making another profile will get you suspended so don't do that.  But as stated before you don't have to take all of the tests just because they were suggested. Take only the tests that correspond with your skills. Smiley Happy

Hi Radhika,

 

I can confirm the information Katrina shared and would advise you to take only tests relevant to your core skills, which you are advertising on your profile.

Radhika - You don't have to take ANY tests. They are not required. Test are on here to perhaps give you a TINY edge in getting awarded a contract/job. They are here to show that you do have the knowledge in the skill tests that you take. However, they are kind of flawed. There's way to much cheating on them to the point of them not really meaning that much anymore.
