I am a new member of Proz. I found Proz was a good website to find translation jobs.

I browsed some jobs and bit for them, but I found it seem very difficult to secure a job here, especally the first one.

What was the problem? Was my rate too high? I asked for 0.08USD/word.

I will appreciate it if anyone can help identify the reasons.
