Davide, what follows is not meant to the original poster specifically but has to be understood as a broader observation about this community.
Each industry has its standards. And each industry has its bozos. I can't draw, I have zero visual artistic sense but I can buy (crack) Photoshop, play with some tutorials and then come here and try to sell my services as a graphic designer and illustrator working for 3 bucks per hour.
I may receive some snarky comments from real pros in the field. Especially if they have spent some time on this community and if they have seen all kinds of people like me. Sometimes you just get tired of being nice.
Translation, just as graphic design, is a craft that requires experience and expertise. Translators only translate in their native language and whoever says to translate in their source language, especially if they demonstrate a poor command of this language, are amateurs.
They may receive some snarky comments from real pros in the field. It happens. Hang on here for few months and your surprise/shock will fade, replaced with totally different, and less noble, feelings :-)
I really appreciate your comment, thank you so much for your tips and of course that I will follow! It will be very usefull for me.
I will work more in my cover letter, because I don´t want that sounds too foreign !! :/. In general, since I started as a freelancer in March of this year, the results are great for me in this new chapter of my life and I really love it what I do now. I have had excellent communication with the clients and until today I did not have any inconvenient, the clue is improve my skills everyday and I am daily working on it
