Joining ProZ.com was an investment which paid off very quickly. I secured some excellent clients through the site, and ProZ.com has been instrumental in my growth in the profession - I continue to learn from all the great information and events on offer. Potential clients now approach me and that, without a doubt, is thanks to ProZ.com.
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.

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!
Benefits of full membership in this site is worth of every penny I paid. For me and many other professionals in this industry, ProZ.com is now a sector standard and reference point.

Website team are real pros. They instantly take care of your queries and do their best as a help desk.

Thanks to my ProZ.com membership I gained and go on gaining several interesting customers and translation projects. ProZ.com is a real place for translators: colleagues, help, training, fun. Thank you very much ProZ.com!
ProZ.com is een hoogst betrouwbare referte.
Thank you for your effort! I find it very useful.
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.
I am very pleased with ProZ.com, consider it a valuable resource and have met quite a few clients through it. So for me it is a worthy investment.

I must say that I continue to be breathless at how well ProZ.com anticipates / accommodates the needs of freelance translators. . . I was tearing my hair out and tossing small wads of money down the drain trying to find an invoicing program that did only what yours now does and nothing more.
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.
The membership really pays off very fast. Not only the return on investment into the membership is very high as you soon find clients or they find you. Having the opportunity to participate at the PRO Network also made a big change in my career.
ProZ.com funciona muy bien si uno es capaz de mostrarse de manera eficaz mediante el perfil.

Seven years ago, ProZ.com gave me an unexpected opportunity to finally start teleworking in translation.


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.
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!

Začel sem kot nečlan in skoraj nisem dobil nobenega dela. Ko pa sem kupil članstvo, mi je že prvi projekt pokril ta strošek.
In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
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.

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

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!
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.
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
My career as a translator is going very well since I became paying member of ProZ.com. My profile page on ProZ.com has been extremely effective and I put a lot of work in it to make it stand out from the crowd. This pays, I get more and more job requests through ProZ.com and I don't have to reply to jobs anymore because I am always busy. Without ProZ.com I would not have dared taking the step to bring my translation career to a professional level.
Sì- è un buon investimento per le ragioni già ampiamente esposte, e non dimenticare che il costo è scaricabile dal reddito imponibile !

Mil gracias ProZ.com por darme la posibilidad de vivir de mi profesión, relacionarme con colegas y clientes, hacer consultas, brindar respuestas y capacitarme, todo siempre dentro de un marco de colaboración y respeto.

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!

By becoming a member, your visibility on searches from outsourcers increases significantly, especially if you also participate in KudoZ and forums and it is much easier for outsourcers to find you.

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!
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.

I've met several good translators here and get plenty of interesting work on a regular basis directly through my profile. That alone is worth the price of membership.

A few months ago I bid on a job because it called my name. The poster happily agreed to my rate and we've been working together ever since!
Elizabeth Adams

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 !!!
ProZ.com is a great community and I am happy to be part of it!

I never regret my decision to join ProZ.com, because I find it both rewarding and enjoyable to be a member of the world's largest portal for translators and interpreters.
As an old song used to say, more or less, "Jeepers, creepers... where�d ya get them... 'ideas'"? These new features are simply fantastic and they work beautifully. My platinum membership is worth every dollar.

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.

ProZ.com — лучший, на мой взгляд, сайт для профессиональных переводчиков. Это не только удобная площадка для общения с коллегами, но и полезный информационный ресурс. А самое главное — это реальная возможность приобрести новых клиентов.
