I attended a powwow yesterday.

I have thought 'ProZ' should be pronounced as [pro'zi:], but actually many others said [pros].

So what is the standard pronunciation of this word?

Thank you!

2. How is "ProZ.com" pronounced?

At headquarters in New York, ProZ.com staff refer to the site as "proz-dot-com", with the 'proz' part pronounced exactly like "(written) prose" or "pros" (as in professionals). But some people say "pro-zee-dot-com", "pro-zed", "procetta", etc.
