(1) ProZ.com acquires TM-Town; ProZ.com members receive free TM-Town membership
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Earlier this month it was announced that ProZ.com had acquired TM-Town, a service that matches translators to new potential clients based on previous work done.

Thank you to the ProZ.com members who have taken advantage of the free Starter membership at TM-Town so far! If you have not done so already, there is still time to activate your free TM-Town membership:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(2) Benefit from the TM-Town acquisition and increase your exposure to new clients and collaborators
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you missed out on the free TM-Town membership given to all ProZ.com paying members, there is still a chance to get both ProZ.com and TM-Town membership together, at an excellent discount. A strong, professional profile and membership on both sites can significantly increase your exposure to new potential clients and collaborators. Even if you are fully-booked at the moment, this exposure can help to ensure a steady flow of clients in the future.
