(2) Eszter Lelik. Interpreter, translator, winner of a new car
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the January newsletter, Eszter Lelik -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1011809 -- an English to Hungarian translator and interpreter from Hungary, was announced as the grand prize winner of a new Nissan Juke car in the Open Road series.

"To become an interpreter has always been my dream. Now, more than two decades after the start of my career I am still certain that I have the best job in the world, at least the right one for me. I like independence, intellectual activity, constant learning, and travelling, always meeting new and interesting people. I have worked for/with famous politicians, celebrities, artists and I sometimes I am amused by realizing that most of them have already disappeared from the public life, from the stage, and I am still here."

(3) New service package for professional freelance translators moves to regular price
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In last month's newsletter I mentioned that the new Plus service package for freelance translators was discounted, and the price would be going back to normal. This is it, your last chance to get in on what nearly 3,000 translators have already subscribed to for 149 USD a year, before it becomes 180 USD.

Don't say I didn't warn you later!

http://www.proz.com/about-plus-package

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(4) The results are in, but the year is young, pessimists!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Around 78% of translators said that they were either somewhat or very optimistic about their translation businesses in 2017. Thank you to everyone who participated with their votes or participated in the discussion!

(5) When was the last time you updated your profile?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Is your online profile complete? Are you posting samples and previous projects to illustrate what you are good at? Does it have a strong tagline, a professional-looking picture, does it highlight your areas of expertise? Are you showing your availability, and collecting feedback from clients?

These are all things clients are looking for when they search for new translators. Your chances at meeting new clients and collaborators on ProZ.com are only as good as your presentation-- your profile.

"Meeting clients at ProZ.com" is a free webinar series designed to help you make those new client connections on ProZ.com, and on the web in general too. Below are upcoming webinars for March and April. If you haven't attended one yet, don't wait:
