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):
- Go to Find Work > Profile
- Scroll to the Languages section (in the right column near the top) and click the Add button
- 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.
