Personally, being a ProZ.com member and using the website has made the difference for me as a translator and the fact that I am today a very successful translator is entirely due to my membership. In the last few years, I have tripled my production and my income. I work when I want and where I want.

Shukrani kwa ProZ.com kwa kunipa fursa kubwa ambayo sijawahi kupata kabla, nimejifunza mengi kutoka kwenye kozi za mafunzo ya kulipia na vikao vya mikutano ya bure, wafanyakazi wa ProZ.com daima wamekuwa wasaidizi wazuri mno kwangu, mfumo wao wa uendeshaji ni rahisi kutumia na umeniongezea SEO yangu, idadi ya wateja wangu na wageni inaongezeka kwa kasi.
I am a paid member since 2005. My membership brings me a lot of customers. It seems that it was a very good investment.

It has always been very useful for me. I would recommend anyone to join ProZ.com. I got there some of my most exciting jobs. I even became a supplier for interpreting services for a very big multinational through ProZ.com.
ProZ.com membership is powerful, sound and simply the best.

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.
ProZ.com membership increases your outlook and gives you exposure: You can be found. You are someone, your efforts can be appreciated by others (particularly outsourcers).
I have been a paying member for about 9 months. During that time I have met more than new 10 clients, most of them paying really well and usually on time.
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.
Depuis 2010, ProZ.com m'a beaucoup apporté: de nombreux contacts professionnels, des collègues qui sont devenus des amis, des formations très intéressantes, la certification PRO et des outils dont je me sers chaque jour (calendrier, factures, recherche terminologique). Aujourd'hui, j'envisage d'aider à mon tour en partageant mon expérience avec les nouveaux venus via le programme de tutorat ou en donnant des formations. Une chose est sûre, je ne regrette pas mon affiliation.
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.

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!
而 ProZ.com 所舉辦的網上虛擬會議,讓我們瞭解與世界各地的自由譯者之間差距,讓我們從自由譯者的角度去感受,重新思考工作流程,使之後合作更加密切。
I tried the tool out and it is AMAZING. Congratulations to ProZ.com for thinking of and developing such a fantastic and helpful tool.

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

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!

Začel sem kot nečlan in skoraj nisem dobil nobenega dela. Ko pa sem kupil članstvo, mi je že prvi projekt pokril ta strošek.
This is simply the best, most comprehensive support network and best moderated web site I could wish for as a translator.
Anne Lee

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


Add enjoyment to your work
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.

Takk for den flotte jobben dere gjør. Uten dere ville jeg ikke ha jobbet som oversetter!
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 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.

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.

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 stanowi z pewnością wspaniały niezbędnik warsztatu pracy lingwistów. Z przyjemnością pod wszelkimi względami polecam korzystanie z dobrodziejstwa tej witryny internetowej każdej osobie zainteresowanej przekładem językowym. Polecam witrynę ProZ.com i członkowstwo zwłaszcza tłumaczom i nabywcom usług lingwistycznych.
Proz.com is like a wonderful tool kit for a workshop of linguists. I recommend with pleasure to become a member of the website society and have benefits available in many respects to each person interested in any language translation. I recommend the website and membership mainly to linguists – translators & interpreters and to buyers of linguistic services.
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.
La membresía profesional, entre otras cosas, te da acceso inmediato a notificaciones de trabajo y acceso al Blue Board, un registro muy útil en el que los compañeros dejamos indicaciones sobre la fiabilidad de las agencias. Te salvará de disgustos con malos clientes.
Mi sono iscritto a Proz.com semplicemente perchè è la miglior community di traduttori sul web!
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.
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.
ProZ.com is een hoogst betrouwbare referte
één bijzondere kwaliteitsmerk : met behulp van ProZ's Blue Board verifieer ik altijd de vertaling jobs, die op andere sites geplaatst worden...
Die Mitgliedschaftkosten sind ihr Geld wert und machen sich schnell bezahlt.
