Do you represent a business?



Complete your profile and meet clients



Are you looking for clients? The majority of job offers that go through happen when a potential client searches the directory and contacts service providers that match their job requirements directly through their profiles. This is why having not a good, but a great profile becomes really important. What do you want them to see when they visit your profile? What makes you different from the rest? What is your expertise? What credentials have you earned? Clients are just a mouseclick away. Get ready to welcome them.




Optimize the big three


To have a great profile you should start by focusing on the three main pieces of information that a potential client will see first when visiting your profile page:


icons8-name-100Your photo

icons8-hand-with-pen-100Your name

icons8-membership-card-80 Your tagline

These are the most visible portions of your profile, information that everyone will see even without opening your profile page, that is, in your directory listing, from quotes you submit through the job posting system, in KudoZ, forums, and other areas of the site.

Display feedback


Unless you are new to the translation industry, you should be able to collect a few feedback comments from clients to display in the upper right corner of your profile and other site areas such as the directory.

Client feedback conveys trust to potential clients (if you are getting started in the industry, don't worry! There are still other ways of conveying trust in the meantime. Learn more ») If you opt to show feedback from previous satisfied clients, you may be better positioned to turn potential new clients into actual ones, to justify above-average rates, to mitigate the need for performing test translations, etc.

Having WWA entries is also one of the search criteria that can be used by potential clients to find freelancers in the directory since this is useful information that outsourcers can use to manage risk when locating new service providers.

Request feedback comments from previous clients and even from colleagues. They don't even need to create an account at to be able to leave entries for you!

Define your audience


Your profile is your public face at, it is the first impression that potential clients and colleagues will have of you. When building a professional looking profile, you should think as your profile visitors. You build your profile for them, not for you.


Ask yourself: is it clear from my profile information the services I offer? Are my top fields of expertise shown on top? Do my tagline and bio clearly state what makes me different from the rest? Is the information in my profile written in the language of my potential clients? If the answer to any of these is 'no', the it's time for a profile review.
