Die Mitgliedschaft macht sich schnell bezahlt. Nicht nur, dass die Rentabilität sehr hoch ist, da man schnell Kunden findet bzw. von ihnen gefunden wird. Mit der Mitgliedschaft kann man sich sofort auf Ausschreibungen bewerben, ohne erst 12 Stunden als Nicht-Mitglied warten zu müssen. Dies ist ein sehr großer Vorteil. Von den vielen großartigen Kursen, die angeboten werden, einmal ganz abgesehen. Die Möglichkeit, am ‚Certified PRO Network‘ teilzunehmen, hat meiner Karriere eine große Veränderung eingebracht.
I am a paid member since 2005. My membership brings me a lot of customers. It seems that it was a very good investment.

Sa pagiging isang bayad na miyembro sa loob ng 2 taon na ngayon, hindi lang naging triple ang aking mga kliyente ngunit nakakuha rin ng tiwala at kompiyansa mula sa kanila upang gamitin nang paulit-ulit ang aking mga serbisyo sa wika. Lubos akong nasisiyahan sa mga benepisyo kasama ang suporta na ibinigay ng ProZ.com sa akin sa buong mga taon at bumibilang pa. Maraming salamat!

I tried the tool out and it is AMAZING. Congratulations to ProZ.com for thinking of and developing such a fantastic and helpful tool.

To me, it really is a no-brainer. The fee represents a few hours of labor and the advantages I derive from it far exceed the small outlay of cash. Any single one of the benefits I've cited above would be worth the annual fee.
ProZ.com is echt de beste website/verzamelplaats voor vertalers en iedereen die werkt met taal.

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!

Since I joined ProZ.com the number of my customers has increased and now I have more job opportunities. I owe so much to ProZ.com and I am very satisfied with being a member of the ProZ.com community.
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 !
Ingressar no ProZ.com foi um investimento que deu um retorno muito rápido. Consegui clientes excelentes através do site, e o ProZ.com tem sido instrumental em meu crescimento na profissão - continuo a aprender das informações e os eventos disponibilizados. Agora, são os clientes potenciais que me procuram e ísso é, sem dúvida, graças ao ProZ.com.
I started as a non-member and got practically no jobs. After I purchased the membership, the first project already covered it.
I would certainly recommend becoming a ProZ.com member. I have been able to get many jobs through ProZ.com. It's "before and after" for a translator who wishes to remain a freelancer. I cannot wait to renew my membership whenever it's due. Think about this: normally "one" project pays the annual fee.

I would certainly recommend becoming a paying member at ProZ.com. I started with a free membership, but I have had much more work since I decided to invest in ProZ.com membership. Now I don't have any delay before quoting for a "private" job posting, I have access to the LWA of every outsourcer on the Blue Board, and I can meet fellow translators via the site or at a powwow.
I have obtained and *kept* 11 clients.

Becoming a ProZ.com member last year was certainly a very good investment. I have gained new clients, full access to the Blue Board and can now choose from a wide range of ProZ.com training events, often at a lower cost.

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

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

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.

Začel sem kot nečlan in skoraj nisem dobil nobenega dela. Ko pa sem kupil članstvo, mi je že prvi projekt pokril ta strošek.
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.


Add enjoyment to your work
Jak dotąd zostanie członkiem Proz.com było moją najlepszą inwestycją w karierę. To kontakty nawiązane przez Proz pozwoliły mi zająć się wyłącznie tłumaczeniem i doskonalić w zawodzie. Gorąco polecam
Stanislaw Czech, MCIL

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 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.

Since I signed up in 1999 the world for me as a freelancer has transformed. There is a 'before' and 'after ProZ.com'

I have thoroughly enjoyed my membership (Dec 2000) for all it offers:

. Job offers (only slowly appearing during my first years - Swedish is a niche language),
. Knowledge sharing (KudoZ, articles, forum postings),
. Views sharing (forums),
. Social contacts (forums, powwows, conferences)
. Fun (forums and meetings)
.Practical help (recommending lodging for my daughter in New York and our stay in London),
. Buying and selling opportunities of lexica, books and programs ('Exchange')
. Expert advice on computer problems and programs (forums)
. Exposure: You can be found. You are someone, your efforts can be appreciated by others
(particularly outsourcers ;-) ) (directory, Connect and KudoZ)
. You can feel 'nest warmth' like in a family or in a club
. You increase your outlook. You get to know how people from other countries and cultures think.
Using the ProZ.com message function and the eMail link or Skype, you can get instant contact
with colleagues across the globe for in-depth individual discussions on all subjects.

I have indeed grown as a professional and as an individual by embracing all the above ProZ.com advantages.

EUR 80/USD 120/year (less for renewals) is a bargain price for what you get!

I would not be a translator without you guys!
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.
Being a ProZ.com member makes you more visible. Most of the jobs are awarded directly, bypassing the bidding system.
Hynek Palatin

ProZ.com is indispensable for two reasons:
1. The BlueBoard - where avoiding one bad payer will cover your subscription
2. The Translators' Directory - where clients go looking for translators.
Takk for den flotte jobben dere gjør. Uten dere ville jeg ikke ha jobbet som oversetter!
Thanks to ProZ.com in one year my life has changed, I have now become a full time translator, receiving many jobs from Italy and mainly abroad, I have now created my full time job which I can do from any part of the world or just by staying at home, all of this has been possible thanks to ProZ.com and the friendly and warm community support network! Not only I have increased my clients base but I have also got a longer list of new friends ..all of this couldn't have happened without ProZ.com!!
ProZ.com to pierwsze, co przychodzi mi na myśl, kiedy ktoś mnie pyta, na czym polega praca tłumacza.

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!
ProZ.com is making the difference all over the net.
En lo personal, considero que la inscripción en ProZ.com es una de las mejores inversiones de mi vida.
