Once I discovered ProZ.com, I immediately became a member and started to reply to job offers. Now, thanks to ProZ.com I have many good clients all over the world.Thanks to ProZ.com my dream of becoming a full-time freelance translator has come true, together with a good income. What can I add? Thanks a lot for running the site.
The membership really pays off very fast. Not only that the return on investment into the membership is very high as you soon find clients or they find you. With a membership you can immediately apply to job offers instead of waiting 12 hours until it gets released for non-paying members. This gives a great advantage. Not to mention all the great courses that are available. Having the opportunity to participate at the Certified PRO Network also made a big change in my career.
ProZ.com gives you Internet visibility. The fee represents a few hours of labor and the advantages I derive from it far exceed the small outlay of cash.
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!
Proz.com stanowi z pewnością wspaniały niezbędnik warsztatu pracy lingwistów.
I started as a non-member and got practically no jobs. After I purchased the membership, the first project already covered it.
I have paid for full membership at the beginning of this year, and answering KudoZ questions, following and participating in the forums, and attending a recent powwow has been very profitable, both in terms of new jobs (usually offered to me through visualization of my profile, more rarely from bids) and contacts. I am happy with the results so far.
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.

On a base of my experience to date I confirm that my investment in Proz.com was and still is profitable.
I have met all of my present clients on ProZ.com. The Blue Board and the term database are very useful. To me, they are worth the membership cost alone.

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.
Na bazie dotychczasowego doświadczenia potwierdzam, że moja inwestycja w Proz.com opłaciła się i nadal się opłaca.
I have acquired 60% of the total number of my clients via ProZ.com. The site is extremely efficient and is visited by serious outsourcers. Therefore, I will stay with the site!
Cela fait déjà deux ans depuis que je fais partie de la commune ProZ.com. Le site m'a offert la possibilité de travailler avec des agences au niveau international et mon travail et surtout d'apprendre un tas de choses sur notre métier.
I've been registered at ProZ.com since the beginning of my freelance activity and almost all my clients are companies who contacted me through ProZ.com. A couple of them became faithful clients with whom I still work today on a daily basis. We have built a strong partnership. So yes, I am very satisfied with the time, money and efforts invested in my ProZ.com citizenship.

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!

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.
In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
Začel sem kot nečlan in skoraj nisem dobil nobenega dela. Ko pa sem kupil članstvo, mi je že prvi projekt pokril ta strošek.
U vielmi mnohich vypadkach samaja pieršaja zamova, atrymanaja praz ProZ.com, bolš čym całkam pakryvaje hadavy ŭniosak.
ProZ.com is a new higher level society and new way of thinking for translators!
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
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!

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

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.

ProZ.com is making the difference all over the net.
I have joined the ProZ community in March this Year, and believe me in just 3 months I have felt like being a part of a family which is always there to support me for my betterment. Offers are on a rise, as well as the rates. It is this membership which has given me a forum which also had a positive impact on my personality. I am much-much more confident and ready for challenges which was not there earlier.
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.

I thank ProZ.com team members & moderators for their active support.
Congratulations and thank you very much for your hard work.
For the past months as I begun my membership in ProZ it has been nothing but excitement, fun, learning and giving, as well as meeting colleagues, working with them, receiving the help many times needed and a great place to step into. Life becomes easier with people like you backing us!
Приобретение членства - это реальная инвестиция в развитие бизнеса. Вот уже пять лет мы постоянно увеличиваем клиентскую базу, наращиваем прибыль и эффективно развиваемся. Мы напрямую связываем успешность нашего предприятия с приобретением членства Proz.com!
No es un costo, es una inversión en tu profesión, tu trabajo, tu futuro. Seguro que otros colegas te darán una opinión similar.
Being a ProZ.com member makes you more visible. Most of the jobs are awarded directly, bypassing the bidding system.

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 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!
