Add Other Languages to Your Freelancer Profile

Upwork draws users from around the globe and many prefer to collaborate in languages besides English. In addition, some projects may require the ability to read and write (or translate) certain languages. Therefore languages are searchable on profiles and projects just like skills. You can help your profile stand out to global clients by including all languages in which you feel comfortable communicating. 

To add a language (other than English):

  1. Go to Find Work > Profile
  2. Scroll to the Languages section (in the right column near the top) and click the Add button
  3. Enter the name of the language and specify your proficiency

Click the Save button or, if you want to enter more, click the Save and Add More button.

Our records show your Upwork account is not active.

This might be due to no account activity (earnings, payments, contracts, etc.) or because we had to suspend it. When we suspend an account we send an email explaining the reason and whether or not you can take steps to reverse the suspension. Please review that email for more details.

For general questions, you can visit our Community or review our Terms of Service.

We’ll start a video chat with you. Please make sure you use a desktop device with a camera to continue the process. Also, allow Upwork temporary use of your camera and microphone. You may disable this access after the chat session.

If all of our agents are busy when you attempt to chat, please hold, and one of our agents will be with you shortly.
