I am sure everyone have had this experience, and this was discussed before on here. Is there no way that Fiverr can do a very simple and basic language test on people when they indicate they speak a language and then add a “green tick” next to it as verified. Buyers or sellers could choose to do the test or not, and the green tick would only indicate that it was done.
I have had several instances where someone lists English as their only spoken language, and it is immediately clear when you receive the order that it is not and it leads to misunderstandings.
It could be a simple 10 question test, with perhaps 5 multiple choice answers and a time limit to complete the test once you start to prevent them from going on “google translate” before answering. Perhaps even a set of 5 alternative sets of questions, to prevent them from copying the questions and then re-attempting to complete the test later.
Just a thought, because not only does it affect communication but it affects everyone’s bottom-line eventually, including Fiverr’s revenue potential.
