The client attached a file as a sample and wrote in the job post he wanted it to guarantee the good work.
I just translated it and got this message.
"the job was closed"

Hi Shoga,

 

Sorry to hear that. Can you please send me a direct message with the name of the client or the job post you are referring to so that I can share this with the team? Also, please read this article on tips to avoid questionable jobs and on how you can report suspicious activity. Please know that we do not tolerate violators to our ToS ,and appropriate actions are taken to those found to be violating.

 That is because clients are not allowed to ask for free work, and you gave him just that. Free work.

All client's instructions in a proposal are not supposed to be followed to the letter, step back and think if that piece is the only thing the client needed to be translated, he got it for free, either from you or somebody else.

Thanks for indicating that. But the client has 5 stars and said he had another jobs are coming in the job post.i may misunderstand her,but I can't find the post anymore

Client fool freelancers this way, they asked for free work and got away with it. Never, ever do work for free.

Work after you have been hire, hourly or fixed price, for both payment method verified, and milestone funded.

That's why the job was taken down by upwork, it's against TOS to ask for free work.

Some scammers are able to trick new freelancers into doing work free of charge by including a "test" or by promising to pay later and never doing so. When those scammers are caught, their job posts are removed. Your message will say the job was declined but in reality, it was removed from the system because it was a scam. 

 

You should read some the posts about avoiding scams before you apply for more jobs. Check the "New to Upwork" section under Community Discussions. 

She has got five stars so I didn't expect she is a scammer
Many thanks.
