ProZ.com is terrific. I would not have a translation career without these past 7 years as a member. Between the technology and the global marketplace provided by ProZ.com, there's never been a better time to be a translator. No ProZ.com, no translation career. Thanks ProZ.com!

Seven years ago, ProZ.com gave me an unexpected opportunity to finally start teleworking in translation.
I think the invoicing tool is about as perfect as it can be. Great job!
For me everything changed after I became a paying member of ProZ.com... I cannot think of any other investment I have made in my business which has generated nearly as much income as the ProZ.com membership has.
Most of my new clients now come from ProZ.com, and I have to say that fine-tuning my profile has generated some pretty good "matches" (clients that are willing to pay my rates for specific subject areas). I think ProZ.com is a great source of new clients and it is also hugely helpful in avoiding bad payers.
I would certainly recommend becoming a ProZ.com member. I have been able to get many jobs through ProZ.com. It's "before and after" for a translator who wishes to remain a freelancer. I cannot wait to renew my membership whenever it's due. Think about this: normally "one" project pays the annual fee.

Benefits of full membership in this site is worth of every penny I paid. For me and many other professionals in this industry, ProZ.com is now a sector standard and reference point. Moreover, ProZ.com PRO certification is taken seriously by many customers as a reliable confirmation of your skills. I have found almost all of my clients through ProZ.com. Website team are real pros. They instantly take care of your queries and do their best as a help desk.

The vast majority of my clients have found me through ProZ.com, while my membership is compensated by a half day's work — good ROI, I believe. Invest in your success!

Som platiaci člen od roku 2005. Členstvo mi prináša mnoho zákazníkov. Zdá sa, že to bola veľmi dobrá investícia.

I was a non-paying guest at first and noted a difference afterwards which is worth every cent of the membership fee. Besides obtaining several jobs (at fair rates and without having any KudoZ at first), I have gained some regular clients over the past 18 months. Some of them contacted me directly from the directory.
I have had a lot more profitable work since I joined ProZ.com last year,
and can pick and choose my jobs now, which is a great luxury.
Cela fait déjà deux ans depuis que je fais partie de la commune ProZ.com. Le site m'a offert la possibilité de travailler avec des agences au niveau international, d' avoir plus de confiance en moi et mon travail, de faire des connaissances extrêmement intéressantes et surtout d'apprendre un tas de choses sur notre métier. Félicitations ProZ.com vous faites du bon travail!
ProZ.com membership increases your outlook and gives you exposure: You can be found. You are someone, your efforts can be appreciated by others (particularly outsourcers).
When I started freelancing almost ten years ago, I used a variety of methods to reach out to potential clients. I placed an ad in the local yellow pages (no lead whatsoever), I sent out hundreds of emails to translation agencies (this landed me a couple of jobs), but by far the most efficient way of promotion was using the features that are available on ProZ.com.

One of the main benefits of being a paying member of ProZ.com is having full access to Blue Board information and site forums. What's more, most of my clients have found me via my ProZ.com profile.


Get and give professional advice
In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
ProZ.com is not only our workplace, it's also a worldwide, developing community of people in translation business.

ProZ.com is a new higher level society and new way of thinking for translators!
The KudoZ section has become a regular part of my daily working routine. I can always count on it for useful information and interesting linguistic and cultural tidbits, as well as insights into my colleagues backgrounds and thought processes.

U vielmi mnohich vypadkach samaja pieršaja zamova, atrymanaja praz ProZ.com, bolš čym całkam pakryvaje hadavy ŭniosak.
This is simply the best, most comprehensive support network and best moderated web site I could wish for as a translator.
Anne Lee

Our common experiences as translators, the sharing of worries, doubts, questions in our forums regarding ONE TOPIC: TRANSLATION, all this has already created a warm, welcoming and caring community,
complete with powwows and special personal friendships.

Thanks for creating an inspiring place for us.
ProZ.com has acted as my guide. With my ProZ.com membership, I'm a happy, fully-fledged freelancer and I can safely say that I wouldn't be where I am today without the knowledge that I have gained from the site or the friendly community support network. Thank you!

This past year has been great. I woke up one morning deciding to go back to translating full time but I was not 100% sure that my decision was the right one. I left my "safe" English teaching job and recontacted my old clients. It didn't take long and I was soon back on track. Thanks to ProZ I have made contacts with new agencies around the world. I have met colleagues worldwide and found new friends... Words are my passion and this is the ideal job for me with growing children who love to see me around. My small office at home is not a lonely place at all and may I say I have never been happier. Thanks
Bır de 10 yıllık üyelik ücreti olmasi gerekir. Onun daha avantajli bir fiyati vardi. Ben vakti zamaninda 10 yil için üye olmustum. Pek dogal olarak bunun fiyati senelik üyelige göre daha avantajli idi.
What I like most at ProZ.com is the relationship between the ProZ.com staff and us, the members. I felt that, while other sites are only after the money, you really care about us and about the way you can help us. This is very important.

Add enjoyment to your work
Avant tout, ProZ.com représente pour moi une plate-forme d’échanges internationale permettant de côtoyer d’autres traducteurs via les forums et les formations. J’apprécie également la possibilité de pouvoir obtenir des informations sur les agences de traduction et les donneurs d’ordre en général grâce au Blue Board (certes non exhaustif, mais ô combien utile !), et de l’aide en cas de besoin avec les KudoZ. De plus, grâce à ProZ.com, j’ai trouvé un client avec lequel je travaille régulièrement : espérons que cela ne soit que le début d’une longue série!
Proz.com membership opened up the world for me, and within a couple of years I managed to obtain an extensive international clientele. Throughout the years I met many interesting people.

Po kilku latach bezpłatnego członkostwa zdecydowałam się zmienić swój status na członka płatnego i… żałuję, że tak długo zwlekałam!
Since I signed up in 1999 the world for me as a freelancer has transformed. There is a 'before' and 'after ProZ.com'

I have thoroughly enjoyed my membership (Dec 2000) for all it offers:

. Job offers (only slowly appearing during my first years - Swedish is a niche language),
. Knowledge sharing (KudoZ, articles, forum postings),
. Views sharing (forums),
. Social contacts (forums, powwows, conferences)
. Fun (forums and meetings)
.Practical help (recommending lodging for my daughter in New York and our stay in London),
. Buying and selling opportunities of lexica, books and programs ('Exchange')
. Expert advice on computer problems and programs (forums)
. Exposure: You can be found. You are someone, your efforts can be appreciated by others
(particularly outsourcers ;-) ) (directory, Connect and KudoZ)
. You can feel 'nest warmth' like in a family or in a club
. You increase your outlook. You get to know how people from other countries and cultures think.
Using the ProZ.com message function and the eMail link or Skype, you can get instant contact
with colleagues across the globe for in-depth individual discussions on all subjects.

I have indeed grown as a professional and as an individual by embracing all the above ProZ.com advantages.

EUR 80/USD 120/year (less for renewals) is a bargain price for what you get!

I've met several good translators here and get plenty of interesting work on a regular basis directly through my profile. That alone is worth the price of membership.

A few months ago I bid on a job because it called my name. The poster happily agreed to my rate and we've been working together ever since!

Da membro pagante invece è possibile rispondere a tutti gli annunci e poi soprattutto leggere i commenti dei colleghi nella Blue Board.

Ho deciso di diventare membro per poter usufruire di tutto ciò che offre questo portale, nella speranza di fare molte esperienze!
Na bazie dotychczasowego doświadczenia potwierdzam, że moja inwestycja w Proz.com opłaciła się i nadal się opłaca. Członkowstwo zapewnia wartościowe wsparcie dla prowadzonej przeze mnie działalności gospodarczej, nakierowanej głównie na realizację i dostarczanie przekładu językowego klientom oczekującym profesjonalnego poziomu współpracy i usług lingwistycznych o wysokiej jakości.
A ProZ.com tagsággal járó előnyök azonban megnyitották előttem a világot, és pár év alatt kiterjedt nemzetközi ügyfélkörre tettem szert. Az évek során rengeteg érdekes emberrel ismerkedtem meg személyesen is a Proz.com rendezvényein, akik mindig nagyon segítőkészek, lelkesek, és a világra nyitottak voltak.

Become a ProZ.com member (the membership fee will definitely pay off), answer KudoZ questions, get some WWA and don't forget to fill out your profile completely.
ProZ.com has certainly given me a boost and is stimulating my will to explore new worlds and opportunities. And to go ahead.
I have to say that getting jobs (and, more importantly, regular clients) via ProZ.com worked a treat for me ... it's not that big an investment if you want to run a business.

Już drugi rok jestem pełnoprawnym członkiem ProZ.com. Uzyskałam dostęp do wielu nowych funkcji, możliwość wystąpienia z prośbą o przyznanie Certyfikacji PRO, a przede wszystkim zwiększyła się moja widoczność jako tłumacza, co umożliwiło mi nawiązanie wielu nowych kontaktów. Grazie ProZ.com!
Стать членом сайта, безусловно, стоит. Я зарегистрирована на ProZ.com с 2002 г., но работу через этот сайт стала получать только после того, как приобрела членство. Годовой членский взнос окупился после первого заказа.
On a base of my experience to date I confirm that my investment in Proz.com was and still is profitable. The membership ensures valuable support for a business activity being lead by me, targeting mainly realization and provision of linguistic services to customers expecting the professional level of collaboration and linguistic services of high quality level.
ProZ.com is a very good marketplace for any translator ... The membership fee is really nothing compared to what you might get from here in the long term.
