I  understand and thank you very much, I corrected those.

but what if I told you that I have submitted over 58 proposals and not one candidacy so far! I mean something must be terribly wrong, right?

 Youssef, your profile is really good and your rate is reasonable for your competition (if anything, it's a bit low). It's possible that maybe there's something wrong with your proposals. Remember that you need to wow the client with your first couple of sentences and stand out from the crowd in that initial skim of the applicant list. From previous experience, there are a LOT of applicants for Arabic translation. You need to show how awesome you are straight away.

It's very hard to get started and I'm not surprised by the 58 proposals. They may be 58 more before you get a job, it took me 2 months to start. But once you kick your career here, it will get only better.
