ProZ.com membership not only gives you access to a fantastic range of services, but makes me as a freelancer feel a little less alone translating away behind my computer. Thank you ProZ.com!

I became a paid member of ProZ.com about 6 months after becoming a freelancer; it paid for itself within the first week and on the first project.

同時 ProZ.com 翻譯社區一個充滿活力網路溝通平台,讓我們有機會來自世界各地的翻譯專業人士還有業界的技術人員,互相交換業界的新資訊以及疑難解答。
I get occasional approaches through my ProZ.com profile, which in itself makes it worthwhile, because one smallish job covers your membership fee. I also use the invoicing feature and free website hosting, so it saves me money in those areas. As others have said the Blue Board is useful and could help you avoid some major headaches. ProZ.com also has a very high rating in Google, so your profile or KudoZ questions you have asked or answered (which will link through to your profile) are likely to come up in web searches, thereby increasing your visibility.

ProZ.com funciona muy bien si uno es capaz de mostrarse de manera eficaz mediante el perfil.

Kişisel olarak, ben çok yararlanıyorum bu siteden. Benden yıllık olarak değil 120 USD, 330 USD bile isteseler, gözümü kırpmadan bu parayı veririm açıkçası.
Инвестиция — это не просто вложение средств. Инвестирование предполагает осуществление практических действий для достижения результата, поэтому само по себе приобретение членства не является залогом успеха. Однако полноценное участие в работе площадки открывает значительные возможности.

On a base of my experience to date I confirm that my investment in Proz.com was and still is profitable.
From the first time I came across with ProZ.com on I can’t live without the best translation and interpreting website all over the world. The investment in Platinum Membership has certainly paid itself off through new contacts and a most comprehensive network support. What more can I ask? ProZ.com, thank you very much for being there!
ProZ.com membership is powerful, sound and simply the best.

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.
I was able to become a full-time freelance translator with clients met through ProZ.com. It was the start to my new life and I haven't looked back since!
Članstvo na Prozu otvara vrata potpuno novog, fantastičnog sveta za prevodioce ne samo zbog toga što vas klijenti tretiraju ozbiljnije i što dobijate više poslovnih ponuda, već i zbog toga što koristeći sve funkcije sajta značajno povećavate svoje znanje o prevodilačkom poslu uopšte i time postajete sigurniji u sebe i produktivniji.
ProZ.com membership is 1000x worth the cost! I wouldn't give up the unlimited Blue Board access for anything... ProZ.com is a great website.

The site is very, very helpful. And meeting even one client can pay for the membership costs!



Get and give professional advice
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!

In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
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.
ProZ.com is a new higher level society and new way of thinking for translators!
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.

This is simply the best, most comprehensive support network and best moderated web site I could wish for as a translator.

U vielmi mnohich vypadkach samaja pieršaja zamova, atrymanaja praz ProZ.com, bolš čym całkam pakryvaje hadavy ŭniosak.
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
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.
Heathcliff

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!
Alp Berker

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.


Add enjoyment to your work
I became a paid member of ProZ.com about 6 months after becoming a freelancer; it paid for itself within the first week and on the first project. Now that my wife and I are opening our own translation agency, ProZ.com has become even more important and valuable for us. We <3 ProZ.com!

On a base of my experience to date I confirm that my investment in Proz.com was and still is profitable. The membership ensures valuable support for a business activity being lead by me, targeting mainly realization and provision of linguistic services to customers expecting the professional level of collaboration and linguistic services of high quality level.
I personally see site participation and membership as highly beneficial in a number of ways, including the following:

1. ... "Internet visibility" ...

2. Unrestricted access to the Blue Board.

3. KudoZ as a resource for terms help when needed.

Takk for den flotte jobben dere gjør. Uten dere ville jeg ikke ha jobbet som oversetter!
Devo dire che i risultati - a meno di sei mesi dal passaggio a membro pagante - si vedono già, ho ampliato molto la mia rete di clienti (ho avuto il mio primo contatto positivo dopo un paio di mesi) e la quota di iscrizione annuale è stata ampiamente ammortizzata.
I am really glad this web site exists!

Je suis satisfait d'être membre payant. J'ai même rempilé pour 5 ans.
I think the site is very helpful to translators and I would like to spread the word around, so that every translator could benefit from the high quality of the site and also have the opportunity to share many doubts with other translators.

A ProZ.com tagsággal járó előnyök azonban megnyitották előttem a világot, és pár év alatt kiterjedt nemzetközi ügyfélkörre tettem szert. Az évek során rengeteg érdekes emberrel ismerkedtem meg személyesen is a Proz.com rendezvényein, akik mindig nagyon segítőkészek, lelkesek, és a világra nyitottak voltak.

I am very happy with my membership and sure many more colleagues will be of theirs in the future!
Стать членом сайта, безусловно, стоит. Я зарегистрирована на ProZ.com с 2002 г., но работу через этот сайт стала получать только после того, как приобрела членство. Годовой членский взнос окупился после первого заказа.

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 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.

अनुवाद से आनेवाली मेरी आमदनी का अधिकांश प्रोज.कॉम के जरिए आता है। प्रोज.कॉम का सदस्य बनने के बाद मेरी आर्थिक स्थति इतनी मजबूत हुई कि मैं अपनी अच्छी-खासी पूर्णकालिक नौकरी छोड़कर पूरा समय फ्रीलांस हिंदी अनुवाद को देने की हिम्मत कर सका।
I have to say that getting jobs (and, more importantly, regular clients) via ProZ.com worked a treat for me ... it's not that big an investment if you want to run a business.
