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, and I cannot imagine what could cause me to cease my membership here. In fact, becoming a full member was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

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.
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 find ProZ.com membership really valuable because I got many good new clients around the world.
ProZ.com es la plataforma por excelencia que permite al traductor encontrar más trabajo. En este espacio profesional uno encuentra además la respuesta a toda pregunta relacionada con la traducción. Cada actividad organizada por ProZ.com es impecable y 100% fiable. Realmente vale la pena pagar la cuota de membresía anual.
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.
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.
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.

I have been a ProZ.com member for some time, and irrespective of anything, such investments are a definite indicator that you are indeed a serious player in this field. This investment is recovered much sooner than expected. Go for it!
I am a paid member since 2005. My membership brings me a lot of customers. It seems that it was a very good investment.

I have been a paying member of ProZ.com for two years now and I would like to express my satisfaction as regards membership benefits. ProZ.com has opened new horizons to me and within this two fruitful years my clients have more than tripled.
I was a non-paying guest at first and noted a difference afterwards which is worth every cent of the membership fee. Besides obtaining several jobs (at fair rates and without having any KudoZ at first), I have gained some regular clients over the past 18 months. Some of them contacted me directly from the directory.
I joined ProZ.com pretty much in the very beginning. At that time I was a school student. Obviously, I was not a translator back then, but I have followed the site ever since. Actually, it would be fair to say that 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, and I cannot imagine what could cause me to cease my membership here. In fact, becoming a full member was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I am now a full-time freelance translator with university education, and I am very happy to be able to say that I have grown up together with ProZ.com!

I'm still in shock that we got the (popular children's character) contract -- it involves work that will go more than a year. And where did the editor-in-chief at their corporate offices in NYC, find me? At my profile on ProZ.com. I tell you, I've never gotten so much out of so little investment.
Bill Greendyk

Of all the annual investments Monica and I make, ProZ.com membership is arguably the most valuable. Every year, our membership generates new business contacts which result in tangible job opportunities... ProZ.com membership is a definite thumbs up!

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 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.
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!

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.

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

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.


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

En lo personal, considero que la inscripción en ProZ.com es una de las mejores inversiones de mi vida.
Sì- è un buon investimento per le ragioni già ampiamente esposte, e non dimenticare che il costo è scaricabile dal reddito imponibile !

Become a ProZ.com member (the membership fee will definitely pay off), answer KudoZ questions, get some WWA and don't forget to fill out your profile completely.
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!
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.

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.
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!

Solamente unos meses en ProZ.com pero suficientes para ver las mejoras realizadas.
Nunca pensé que ProZ.com pudiera dar tanto a tanta gente. Fantástico sitio!

I am very happy with my membership and sure many more colleagues will be of theirs in the future!
ProZ.com to pierwsze, co przychodzi mi na myśl, kiedy ktoś mnie pyta, na czym polega praca tłumacza.

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.
I would not be a translator without you guys!
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.
Da membro pagante invece è possibile rispondere a tutti gli annunci e poi soprattutto leggere i commenti dei colleghi nella Blue Board.

Ho deciso di diventare membro per poter usufruire di tutto ciò che offre questo portale, nella speranza di fare molte esperienze!
