Reviews on competing sites

This freelance and autonomous work site gains its notoriety from the large number of international companies that support it. Indeed, Elance-Odesk was a partner of major franchises such as Walt Disney, Microsoft, Airbnb… And since then, this platform has been gaining more and more service providers and employers to count today around ten million subscribers and two million offers offered.

As Upwork is only available in English, some French-speaking users are looking for other French alternatives. If you also have trouble with the English language, the Hopwork site would be a good option for you. Indeed, Hopwork combines all the advantages of Up-Work and adds to them the fact that it is in French. Isn’t it great?
