Hi Henrique, 


When creating your profile, it has to represent your work, skills, and experience on a specific job category. Your portfolio section should also be projects that you have personally worked on, are related to any or all of your skills, and should adhere to all of Upwork’s Terms of Service

 

Here's a great guide on how you can setup your profile.


 Hi Avery,

 

I understand, I've already found a lot of information in the guide and I believe I already know basically everything I need to start filling out my profile.

My only doubt is in relation to the portfolio, I would like to know if I can translate an educational youtube video and display. Also, where could I find an article to translate and display without infringing copyright?
The people here seem to answer everything except my questions

Hi Henrique, 


Unfortunately, I don't have enough background in translation to be able to give you any concrete tip about this job category. I would suggest that you read up as much information on the job category as you can to be able to start your freelancing business. 

Please also know that we have Community Guidelines in place, and I would request that the guidelines be followed when posting in the Community. Thank you!

Here's an answer for you; go to Gutenberg.org, download any book that takes your fancy and translate a couple of pages from it. These books are all free of copyright and you can basically do anything you want with them, including selling them. 

 

However, when you do anything with a book from this site, such as translating them and posting the translation anywhere, you have to include the very lengthy and complicated licence terms that came with the download, so be sure to also translate and post the licence terms in your portfolio. This will give you experience translating legal texts as well, so for you, it's like killing two birds with one stone.

No, as a general rule everything (books, music, videos, games) is protected by copyright until 70 years after the death of the creator. But there are exception as well.
