I saw several new freelancer profiles recently on upwork with verified badges beside their languages. These freelancers didn't even give any language skill tests. How should I verify the language on my profile?
You will only have seen English verified, and that happens either because the freelancer has had enough clients confirm the set English level in their feedback or because the freelancer has successfully passed (and uploaded the certificates) officially recognized language exams, such as IELT for example, or the Duolingo test, those cost money though.
You will likely have a hard time getting yours confirmed as native / bilingual level though, and frankly in your category it's really not needed anyway.
Hello Mrs Perta
I'm verified in English as level Conversational and depend on your replay to be fluent clients must confirm that.
my question is how client confirm that? and must I change the language to fluent to get verified or it will be verified it I deserved it by upwork system?
I had this same question and arrived to this post looking for the answer. However, ther are a couple of things I would like to ask you. I see that this reply is from 2 years ago, can clients still confirm the English level of freelancers in the feedback they give? Also, can you report a TOEFL score to Upwork?
I would like to confirm Petra's post, clients can rate their FLs fluency when a contract is ended. Freelancers can get English verified on Upwork in two ways: 1) taking a test (including IELTS - English Proficiency Exam, Cambridge, and Duolingo), 2) getting rated by 3 clients (when ending their contracts).
I am top rated and have more than 3 reviews, so what's the reason that I have not got it verified. One of my friends, whose is not even top rated and have only 7 reviews, has got the English language verified and he told me that he had recieved a call from Upwork that was about 2 minutes and after that he had got the badge.
Wha't the reason in my case?
Thank you for your response!
Hello everyone! I have a quick question about the scores. I would really like to verify my english level as fluent, although I can't really say whether it's fluent or conversational. Is there a way I can predict my score? I have taken plenty of online placement tests and all of them put me in the range from B1 to C1 (Duolingo puts me in the 115-155 range), is it enough for fluent? My incomes are not that high so paying 49 bucks for this test would be a significant amount of money spent for me, so I was wondering if whether it's better for me to improve my english level for several months more or whether I take the risk.
