Membre depuis 2 ans, j'ai rencontré environ la moitié de mes clients par ProZ, en particulier par le biais de l'annuaire des traducteurs. Une économie sur le marketing qui me permet de me consacrer entièrement à la traduction !
Na bazie dotychczasowego doświadczenia potwierdzam, że moja inwestycja w Proz.com opłaciła się i nadal się opłaca.
ProZ.com is the platform per excellence to get more work and where you can find the answer to all your translation related questions. What’s more, ProZ.com offers the professional translator various courses and almost all translation software at serious discounts. Every activity that ProZ.com undertakes is perfectly organized and a 100% reliable. Paying for an annual membership is really worth the money.
Die Mitgliedschaft macht sich schnell bezahlt. Nicht nur, dass die Rentabilität sehr hoch ist, da man schnell Kunden findet bzw. von ihnen gefunden wird.
My workload has climbed steadily since I became a member... Another great advantage is the Blue Board... My latest (very big) job came through ProZ.com, so I would say: "Go for it!"
Da quando sono diventata membro pagante di ProZ.com ho acquisito numerosi clienti e progetti interessanti. ProZ.com è una vera piazza per i traduttori: permette di accedere a colleghi, aiuto, formazione, anche divertimento. Grazie davvero ProZ.com!
It's definitely worth it. I've been a registered user at ProZ.com since 2002, but only started getting jobs through the site after becoming a member. The membership fee paid back after the first order.

I found ProZ.com quite useful initially (the term search, KudoZ, the glossaries, etc.), but it really came into its own when I became a paying member. Now, nearly all of my jobs come through my ProZ.com profile, and through repeat requests from regular clients, and I can't remember the last time I actually bid for a job.

The Blue Board is extremely useful for filtering out undesirable clients (bad/slow payers) - a feature that is only available to full members, but it is worth its weight in gold.

I am really happy that I`ve joined the ProZ.com family, I have always been satisfied with this work group.
I hope after 30 yrs, I will say these things again!
Thank you all!
ProZ.com то не только удобная площадка для общения с коллегами, но и полезный информационный ресурс. А самое главное — это реальная возможность приобрести новых клиентов.

I have acquired 60% of the total number of my clients via ProZ.com. The site is extremely efficient and is visited by serious outsourcers. Therefore, I will stay with the site!
I am a paid member since 2005. My membership brings me a lot of customers. It seems that it was a very good investment.

その間、いくらか仕事をこなしてきたので、チャンスを広げたいと思い、今度は年会費を振り込んで、"ProZ.com member" に。それからひと月ほどだろうか?なんと4社から立て続けに打診が来たのである。こんなにも効果がはっきりと出るとは、ちょっと意外であった。 だから、すでにいくらか実績があり、翻訳会社とのやり取りにも慣れて来たなら、ぜひこのサイトに登録してみることをお勧めしたい。

ProZ.com is een hoogst betrouwbare referte.
One of the main benefits of being a paying member of ProZ.com is having full access to Blue Board information and site forums. What's more, most of my clients have found me via my ProZ.com profile.


Get and give professional advice
This past year has been great. I woke up one morning deciding to go back to translating full time but I was not 100% sure that my decision was the right one. I left my "safe" English teaching job and recontacted my old clients. It didn't take long and I was soon back on track. Thanks to ProZ I have made contacts with new agencies around the world. I have met colleagues worldwide and found new friends... Words are my passion and this is the ideal job for me with growing children who love to see me around. My small office at home is not a lonely place at all and may I say I have never been happier. Thanks
Začel sem kot nečlan in skoraj nisem dobil nobenega dela. Ko pa sem kupil članstvo, mi je že prvi projekt pokril ta strošek.
U vielmi mnohich vypadkach samaja pieršaja zamova, atrymanaja praz ProZ.com, bolš čym całkam pakryvaje hadavy ŭniosak.
ProZ.com has acted as my guide. With my ProZ.com membership, I'm a happy, fully-fledged freelancer and I can safely say that I wouldn't be where I am today without the knowledge that I have gained from the site or the friendly community support network. Thank you!

Bır de 10 yıllık üyelik ücreti olmasi gerekir. Onun daha avantajli bir fiyati vardi. Ben vakti zamaninda 10 yil için üye olmustum. Pek dogal olarak bunun fiyati senelik üyelige göre daha avantajli idi.
What I like most at ProZ.com is the relationship between the ProZ.com staff and us, the members. I felt that, while other sites are only after the money, you really care about us and about the way you can help us. This is very important.
In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
This is simply the best, most comprehensive support network and best moderated web site I could wish for as a translator.

ProZ.com is a new higher level society and new way of thinking for translators!
ProZ.com has been a valuable resource,such as allowing me to organize a powwow which allowed for new contacts, which have encouraged to the valuable translator relation information that is presented. And most of all in the KudoZ which has allowed me to
broaden my language skills, again thank you!

Our common experiences as translators, the sharing of worries, doubts, questions in our forums regarding ONE TOPIC: TRANSLATION, all this has already created a warm, welcoming and caring community,
complete with powwows and special personal friendships.

Thanks for creating an inspiring place for us.
The KudoZ section has become a regular part of my daily working routine. I can always count on it for useful information and interesting linguistic and cultural tidbits, as well as insights into my colleagues backgrounds and thought processes.

Add enjoyment to your work
When I renew, I will probably do so for another ten-year period. Let me take this opportunity to recommend ten-year membership to everybody who reads these messages. You do not have to worry about renewing each and every year. It is the best investment you can make. Highly recommended!
I've been registered with ProZ.com since 2000. I think Henry and the colleagues have done a great job, expanding the translation community and giving it weight and respectful attitude on behalf of the clients and translators.

Grand Merci! J'apprécie énormément l'aide que ProZ.com apporte aux traducteurs à travers le monde entier. Toutes mes félicitations et je vous exhorte à continuer votre excellent travail! Merci Infiniment!

En lo personal, considero que la inscripción en ProZ.com es una de las mejores inversiones de mi vida.
I became a member as soon as I went freelance... I'm sure it would be harder without ProZ.com. Thanks for the good work!
When I first started providing freelance translations I found ProZ.com a great source of information and helpful in many ways. Now it is part of my daily routine. To me ProZ.com not only means job offers, but it is a community and knowledge base and makes me enjoy work even more. Thanks to everybody working for ProZ.com to provide this page and for ever being helpful!

After several years of free membership I decided to change its status to a paid member ... and I regret that I waited so long!
ProZ.com me llena de estímulo, alegría, aprendizaje. Me da la posibilidad de conocer colegas, trabajar, recibir la ayuda que tantas veces se necesita. Gracias por lo cambios en el área de trabajos, los he utilizado en muchas ocasiones y son maravillosos!

I am convinced that without ProZ.com, I would never have made the contacts I need to work as a full time professional translator. Not only have I received job offers, but I have also established valuable relationships with other translators which have evolved into a mutual support network of trusted colleagues.

Je ne peux pas dire dans quelle proportion mon CA a augmenté suite à mon adhésion car j'ai pratiquement démarré mon activité freelance il y quelques années grâce à Proz. Ou alors il faut dire de 0 à 100% ! car mes premiers clients, je les ai trouvés sur Proz. Ma cotisation était payée (largement) dès mon premier contrat.

ProZ.com is my main “marketing tool”. I have no doubt that ProZ.com has contributed tremendously to my professional growth, and not just because of my profile, but also because of the site's excellent tools and resources. I am very happy with ProZ.com services. I guess what I am trying to say is: Wow, I’m impressed!
ProZ.com is a very good marketplace for any translator ... The membership fee is really nothing compared to what you might get from here in the long term.

Become a ProZ.com member (the membership fee will definitely pay off), answer KudoZ questions, get some WWA and don't forget to fill out your profile completely.
Takk for den flotte jobben dere gjør. Uten dere ville jeg ikke ha jobbet som oversetter!
I don't even want to think where I would have been in my career if it weren't for ProZ.com. Most probably, I would remain stuck within the boundaries of my country, trying irritatingly hard to deliver valuable service in return for dramatically low compensation. ProZ.com has always opened up new horizons for me. My ProZ.com profile is my online business card, the one I can't do without.
