Hi Flavio,

When submitting a proposal, at the bottom of the page there is a section where you can attach a file of a sample of previous work you've done. You can click and drag the file into the box or click the 'upload' link.Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 12.37.47 PM.png

Ryan, sorry I have been trying to get a translation job for almost the whole week that I didn`t get what PM was until I see the green letters over what I wrote.

I hope that you mean the client wants samples of translations that you have done previously, and not samples of his or her own current work. If clients can convince enough freelancers to do "sample" translations, they can piece together all of the "samples" and will have the entire job done for free.

Hi, nice to read you. Well, there were samples of his/her work, and I had a second thoughts and came to the same conclusion as you did. So, immediatelly after writting this I just close that window and stop looking for a way to send those samples to him/her.

Flavio - If a client wants "samples" you can do 1 of 3 things.

1. You can point them to your profile where they can see samples that you have in your portfolio.

2. You can attach samples of previous jobs to your proposal

3. You can let the client know that you'll be happy to provide a specific sample of their work. All they have to do is to set up a contract for $xxx, fund escrow for that amount and you'll provide that sample.
