~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(1) "The Prosperous Translator" now available through the ProZ.com Books section
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Fire Ant & Worker Bee (Chris Durban and Eugene Seidel) have over five decades’ combined experience in the translation business. They firmly believe that skilled translators benefit from adopting an entrepreneurial outlook, sharing insights and experiences, and investing in themselves. Their book, "The Prosperous Translator: Advice from Fire Ant & Worker Bee" can now be seen in the Books section of ProZ.com.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(2) Feature in focus: Project history
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The project history feature allows you to showcase select projects in your profile that are representative of your experience. You may also ask outsourcers to give you feedback on each project. Completing your project history with key projects which underline your areas of expertise is part of the strategy for building a strong, professional profile to show to potential clients.
