Language filter for Translation work?

I don't see an option to select a specific translation language.

 

I do English / Spanish translation... reading and manually filtering through all translation jobs for other languages is really time-consuming and honestly pointless as addinng a language filter upon one's translation category selection is not a big technical challenge for Upwork's developers.

 

Whenever I see a job for a language I don't translate on my feed I select "deosn't match my skillset"... yet Upwork's algorythm doesn't seem to be taking this feedback into account to filter future feed criteria.

 

Any ideas?

It would be nice if we could search for our source and target languages. 50% of the job descriptions that I see are into my source languages.

They do when you try to create a project for the project catalog.

That is interesting - but could you explain?   I am not trying to create a project. What do you mean by project catalog?
