I had registered on a few freelance sites but never actually advertised my profile and wasn't very active in searching jobs. After some months I got offer for translation from Bulgarian to English. I completed the job and got rated by the company. From that moment on, I started to receive new offers non-stop for anything, not related only to my Bulgarian knowledge. I guess it is important to get the first project done and then it becomes easier to get new jobs.
