A sound return on investment, I would say. :)
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.

Membership is worth the investment and pays for itself quickly.

I joined ProZ.com as a paying member in 2009, and haven't looked back since. I've been "found" through ProZ.com from a simple Google search on many occasions.
Salah satu manfaat besar dengan menjadi anggota berbayar ProZ.com ialah dapat sepenuhnya mencari informasi pada Blue Board dan forum. Kebanyakan agensi (kira-kira 40% dari pelanggan saya) mengetahui profil saya dari ProZ.com.
Seven years ago, ProZ.com gave me an unexpected opportunity to finally start teleworking in translation.
I have had a lot more profitable work since I joined ProZ.com last year,
and can pick and choose my jobs now, which is a great luxury.
Proz.com stanowi z pewnością wspaniały niezbędnik warsztatu pracy lingwistów.
I'm still in shock that we got the (popular children's character) contract -- it involves work that will go more than a year. And where did the editor-in-chief at their corporate offices in NYC, find me? At my profile on ProZ.com. I tell you, I've never gotten so much out of so little investment.

Kişisel olarak, ben çok yararlanıyorum bu siteden. Benden yıllık olarak değil 120 USD, 330 USD bile isteseler, gözümü kırpmadan bu parayı veririm açıkçası.
ProZ.com funciona muy bien si uno es capaz de mostrarse de manera eficaz mediante el perfil.

For me everything changed after I became a paying member of ProZ.com... I cannot think of any other investment I have made in my business which has generated nearly as much income as the ProZ.com membership has.
I am a paid member since 2005. My membership brings me a lot of customers. It seems that it was a very good investment.

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. I would especially encourage you to try to answer KudoZ questions. This will help you build your research skills and demonstrate your competence to fellow translators.

After two years at Proz.com, I am addicted - to the humorous, eloquent and co-operative colleagues I have encountered, to KudoZ and to the sheer profusion of job opportunities which have led me to several wonderful outsourcers and outsourceresses. Proz.com contributes generously to the quality of my professional life, I'm in for the duration!


Get and give professional advice
In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
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.
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!

ProZ.com is a new higher level society and new way of thinking for translators!
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.

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

ProZ.com is not only our workplace, it's also a worldwide, developing community of people in translation business.

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.

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
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 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!

Add enjoyment to your work
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.

I couldn't imagine my quickstart as a professional freelancer without ProZ.com. I registered as a user a few months ago to "test drive" the website features. Even without a full membership almost 80% of my current jobs come from ProZ Job Postings. Now that I'm well prepared for freelancing rather than hired as an employee, I expect to establish much more relationships with both agencies and partners.

Thanks ProZ for the valuable tool !!!
I so much enjoy the Proz site and can hardly imagine life without it these days!
Ora che sono membro pagante mi si sono aperte moltissime porte, ho potuto allargare la mia rete di clienti (grazie alla Blue Board) e si vedono già i primi risultati.
Proz.com membership opened up the world for me, and within a couple of years I managed to obtain an extensive international clientele. Throughout the years I met many interesting people.

I'll never understand second thoughts about such a small fee.
Siamo molto soddisfatti dell’iscrizione a Proz.com: lo staff è sempre molto efficiente e cordiale e il sito è ricco di risorse e informazioni utili.
I thank ProZ.com team members & moderators for their active support.
Congratulations and thank you very much for your hard work.
Na bazie dotychczasowego doświadczenia potwierdzam, że moja inwestycja w Proz.com opłaciła się i nadal się opłaca. Członkowstwo zapewnia wartościowe wsparcie dla prowadzonej przeze mnie działalności gospodarczej, nakierowanej głównie na realizację i dostarczanie przekładu językowego klientom oczekującym profesjonalnego poziomu współpracy i usług lingwistycznych o wysokiej jakości.
Mi sono iscritto a Proz.com semplicemente perchè è la miglior community di traduttori sul web!
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.
ProZ.com is a great community and I am happy to be part of it!

Sì- è un buon investimento per le ragioni già ampiamente esposte, e non dimenticare che il costo è scaricabile dal reddito imponibile !

Using ProZ.com for the past 5 years has been and is invaluable to me. It provides a forum for customers to locate a translator to fit their translation needs. When running into problems or queries, the various forums on Proz are an excellent source of advice and collegial support

I became a member of ProZ.com last month and I've already made 2.5x more the price of the membership.
