First of all, remove those 2 tests that are below average, as most clients will want you to have a really good score, especially in English.

Second of all, pay attention to your spelling: clients will ignore you if they see 'i' instead of 'I' (capital). This phrase bugs me: 'my skills are in translating the Data entry, articles from English to Urdu'. 'I'm skilled in performing English to Urdu translations' would sound better.

Try and take a look at other contractor's profiles to get a better idea of how the Overview should sound like.

mmm...I think Irina answered your question for you.

Both of those things say you are NOT a "skilled translator" and you're misrepresenting yourself if you say you are. Clients will pick up on that in your proposal letters. Gee....maybe we've figured out why you're not getting jobs. Wink

Probably best to stick to whatever it is you really know how to do. Translating and writing in English is NOT your strong suit.

Hello Atiq, welcome to oDesk.

Hello Atiq, welcome to oDesk. Please read the material I'm linking below, it will help you in creating a good profile and looking for work:

Also please proofread your profile. You have lots of errors in there and it leaves a bad impression on the potential client. Also you should hide the tests with low scores, prepare for them and retake them (You can do that in thirty days).

Hope this helps!
