Are you quite firm on that $70/hour asking rate that I see in your profile?

 This from your profile- I believe that my work experience, my cultural knowledge and my language skills can be a asset for you.

 

Frankly, it does not matter what you believe. You have to make potential clients believe that part of your profile, and the best way to do that is create a porfolio of your best work. 

Thank you.

I am sorry, that was removed.

Hello Avery,

 

Thank you for your answer.

I am sorry about that , I will remove the picture.

 

Do I need to put my picture on my profile?

 

Thank you

Corinne,

If you want to survive as a freelancer on Upwork or anywhere else, you need to completely reassess your skills and your overview. Your rates are far too high for someone with little or no experience in the working world let alone as a translator. At the moment you have set yourself up as bait for every scammer in the book.

 

Before you even start bidding for jobs you should read all there is to know about Upwork and how it operates and you should start here: https://community.upwork.com/t5/New-to-Upwork/Getting-Started-on-Upwork/m-p/264214#M2460

Hello,

I didi'n really know what amount to put.

Thanks I will reconsider it..
