(1) ProZ.com membership pricing increase, effective July 1st
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As of July 1st of this year, the following will be effective:

* The cost of new ProZ.com membership will increase slightly.

* The cost of ProZ.com membership renewal (which is less than the cost of new membership) will increase slightly.

* Browniz points discounts will become slightly greater.

If you are considering joining ProZ.com as a member, there has never been a better time to do so. If you are already a ProZ.com member, remember that your membership is accumulative, so even if your membership will not expire for some time, you can renew now to add membership to your account before the price increase. Options are also available for multi-year membership purchases.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Inscrições abertas para a IV Conferência Brasileira de Tradutores do ProZ.com - Tradução: profissionalização e mercado.

A Conferência será no Rio de Janeiro, 21, 22 e 23 de setembro de 2012, e tem o intuito de promover todos os setores da tradução, proporcionando novos aprendizados, discussões, aprimoramento técnico, networking, conhecimento de mercado e, é claro, momentos de alegria e descontração com colegas de profissão.

O Rio de Janeiro é conhecido pelas suas belezas naturais e pelas noites animadas, principalmente embaladas pelo samba. No entanto, hoje, o Rio já é palco de grandes negócios que movimentam contratos importantes e entrou definitivamente no eixo de negócios do Brasil e do mundo com os eventos internacionais de grande porte que acolherá: a Copa de 2014 e os Jogos Olímpicos de 2016.

Aproveite a oportunidade para aprender com profissionais tarimbados e descontrair com os colegas de profissão. Venha rever amigos antigos, conhecer outras pessoas e conversar pessoalmente com aquele colega com o qual você só tem contato virtualmente. Programe sua vinda com antecedência para aproveitar melhores condições de traslado e hospedagem e poder se organizar para conhecer a Cidade Maravilhosa. É o momento de abrir uma pausa na agenda de trabalho para se renovar.

A organização da Conferência e o ProZ terão imenso prazer em recebê-los, bem como nosso Keynote Speaker: Renato Beninatto -- http://www.proz.com/profile/128008 -- e nossa Mestre de Cerimônias: Isabel Vidigal -- www.proz.com/profile/93899
