Hi Chiara,


Please, revise your profile and describe your skills and experience in English. You may also want to add a few portfolio pieces to your profile to showcase your skills.


Check out this post for more resources that should help you get started.

Hi Chiara,

To which languages are you translating? No offence, but I think you first have to have a look at your English used in your post. In case you translate to or from English then you'll have to make sure your English is flawless. If the same errors are made in your proposals as in your post here, clients will quickly notice your spelling and grammar mistakes. So, just a tip, brush up your English grammar and conjugations and check your submissions thoroughly before submitting. Make sure they are perfect. Good luck!

Niels - another small tip - you are violating Upwork's ToS by adding your email to your profile. However, you can give private contact numbers in your proposal.
