(1) A language with only 100 words?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"In contrast to the hundreds or thousands of study hours required to attain fluency in other languages, a general consensus among Toki Pona speakers is that it takes about 30 hours to master. That ease of acquisition, many of them believe, makes it an ideal international auxiliary language — the realisation of an ancient dream to return humanity to a pre-Babel unity. Toki Pona serves that function already for hundreds of enthusiasts connected via online communities in countries as diverse as Japan, Belgium, New Zealand, and Argentina."

(3) How visible are you to new clients?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Your online visibility and presence are increasingly key to meeting new clients and collaborators. A strong, professional profile is important to show what you have to offer, and making sure potential clients and collaborators can see that profile is just as important.

One way of gauging your online visibility is by using the "My directory ranking" tool. This feature will show you where you appear in the ProZ.com directory in your language pair(s) and areas of expertise, and also provides tips to increase your directory ranking. The closer you are to the top of the directory, the more likely you are to receive new client contact.

The ProZ.com directory and direct profile contact are the channels through which the majority of work and networking connections are made on the site.
