Yes, that´s tough, you can try to leverage your FAQ section for that too, the FAQ-box itself has a low character limit too, but you could set up the FAQ alternating English/French.
I probably expressed myself badly, I just meant the ‘try to apply to BR to get your first 5 star review’ belongs in the tips here, because the reviews will show up on your profile/gig and thus ‘improve it/your gig’ once you get them.
Looks good to me, your set up, depending on how much competition you got for English-French, you might have to experiment with prices a bit to get your first orders without having to wait too long, maybe look at the price structure of other new sellers offering similar/same services as you and if they have orders/reviews. Reviews of course are one of the main attraction points for buyers, alongside the prices and the impression they get from your profile/gigs.
Depends all on some things of course, the competition, your qualification, how soon you need/want orders, how you want to position yourself, which kind of customers you want to attract etc, and while reviews are one of the main points of attraction for customers, you might not want to go too low, because then you might lose customers/business later on when you adjust your prices and maybe attract some customers you’d rather not have, you can read quite a lot of enlightening things on that complex of themes on the forum… don´t stress about it, maybe consider it as a bit of a game of chess, analysing, thinking through different moves, attacks, defences, can be fun.
BR can be slow, sometimes there´s not anything new a whole weekend long, but there are days like yesterday for example, when the first 4 or so things are all jobs I could do/apply to if I wanted and only 1 seller’s ad then before another couple translation jobs, keep checking BR, it has it´s problems, but I found a few very good jobs through BR, which were/are (repeat buyers) worth it.
