Find premium clients
I have found almost all of my clients through ProZ.com. Benefits of full membership in this site is worth of every penny I paid.

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.

ProZ.com is een hoogst betrouwbare referte.
On a base of my experience to date I confirm that my investment in Proz.com was and still is profitable.
I have obtained and *kept* 11 clients.

Članstvo na Prozu otvara vrata potpuno novog, fantastičnog sveta za prevodioce ne samo zbog toga što vas klijenti tretiraju ozbiljnije i što dobijate više poslovnih ponuda, već i zbog toga što koristeći sve funkcije sajta značajno povećavate svoje znanje o prevodilačkom poslu uopšte i time postajete sigurniji u sebe i produktivniji.
その間、いくらか仕事をこなしてきたので、チャンスを広げたいと思い、今度は年会費を振り込んで、"ProZ.com member" に。それからひと月ほどだろうか?なんと4社から立て続けに打診が来たのである。こんなにも効果がはっきりと出るとは、ちょっと意外であった。 だから、すでにいくらか実績があり、翻訳会社とのやり取りにも慣れて来たなら、ぜひこのサイトに登録してみることをお勧めしたい。

ProZ.com was the main factor in my gradual gravitation towards becoming a freelance translator. ProZ.com is where a good share of my clients found me. Becoming a full member was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

ProZ.com membership is 1000x worth the cost! I wouldn't give up the unlimited Blue Board access for anything... ProZ.com is a great website.

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, d' avoir plus de confiance en moi et mon travail, de faire des connaissances extrêmement intéressantes et surtout d'apprendre un tas de choses sur notre métier. Félicitations ProZ.com vous faites du bon travail!

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.
I am a paid member since 2005. My membership brings me a lot of customers. It seems that it was a very good investment.

Being a paying member of ProZ.com opens the door to a whole new fantastic world for translators. Clients treat you more seriously and you get more job offers.
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.

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

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.
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.
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
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!
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!

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.


Add enjoyment to your work
I'll never understand second thoughts about such a small fee.
I have been a paying member for a year by now and my second year just started. I see a great change in the number of my clients whom I contacted via Proz.com.

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.
ProZ.com is a more than liable reference.
Just another sign of quality: I systematically cross-check translation offers from other sites with the Blue Board database...
ProZ.com has certainly given me a boost and is stimulating my will to explore new worlds and opportunities. And to go ahead.
In 3 years as a Proz member I have got quite a lot of work through having a profile here. That's the keyword: p r o f i l e.

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.

Je ne peux pas dire dans quelle proportion mon CA a augmenté suite à mon adhésion car j'ai pratiquement démarré mon activité freelance il y quelques années grâce à Proz. Ou alors il faut dire de 0 à 100% ! car mes premiers clients, je les ai trouvés sur Proz. Ma cotisation était payée (largement) dès mon premier contrat.

Takk for den flotte jobben dere gjør. Uten dere ville jeg ikke ha jobbet som oversetter!
I have to say that getting jobs (and, more importantly, regular clients) via ProZ.com worked a treat for me ... it's not that big an investment if you want to run a business.

I've been registered with ProZ.com since 2000. I think Henry and the colleagues have done a great job, expanding the translation community and giving it weight and respectful attitude on behalf of the clients and translators.

Boa oportunidade para todos os tradutores. Vou de certeza recomendar a adesão. Acho que é uma grande oportunidade profissional. Não percam esta possibilidade incrível!
I don't even want to think where I would have been in my career if it weren't for ProZ.com. Most probably, I would remain stuck within the boundaries of my country, trying irritatingly hard to deliver valuable service in return for dramatically low compensation. ProZ.com has always opened up new horizons for me. My ProZ.com profile is my online business card, the one I can't do without.
I am glad to renew my ProZ.com membership. I have been a user of the site since 2001, and a paying member since 2008. I can tell you that it is thanks to ProZ.com that my family and I now live comfortably exclusively from my translation work. In addition to translating I was an English teacher for over 20 years but I have quit that job and no longer have to leave home to go to work, etc.
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!
