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.

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.
It's definitely worth it. I've been a registered user at ProZ.com since 2002, but only started getting jobs through the site after becoming a member. The membership fee paid back after the first order.

I think that the full ProZ.com membership is the best option: not only can you get new jobs and clients, but you can also use the help of your fellow translators through the KudoZ feature.

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.

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.
Seguí los consejos para mejorar mi visibilidad y así obtener más trabajo, me convertí en “full member”, en el perfil puse una foto, adecué la tagline haciéndola concreta y específica de mis especialidades, ajusté la coherencia de mis campos de especialización, y obtuve credenciales. Un año después, puedo decir que los resultados fueron excelentes: tengo 3 clientes nuevos y recibí cinco propuestas más de trabajo de clientes potenciales que vieron mi nuevo perfil.

For me everything changed after I became a paying member of ProZ.com... I cannot think of any other investment I have made in my business which has generated nearly as much income as the ProZ.com membership has.

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.

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.

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 is not only our workplace, it's also a worldwide, developing community of people in translation business.

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.
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!
Rebecca Hendry

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!
Alp Berker
United States
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
In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
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.

Спросил переводчика как-то поэт:

"Смог бы фрилансер прожить без Прозет?"

Тотчас же услышал он твердый ответ:

"Да что ты! Смеешься? Конечно же, нет!"

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!
Being a ProZ.com member makes you more visible. Most of the jobs are awarded directly, bypassing the bidding system.

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.
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.
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.
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 !!!
Już drugi rok jestem pełnoprawnym członkiem ProZ.com. Uzyskałam dostęp do wielu nowych funkcji, możliwość wystąpienia z prośbą o przyznanie Certyfikacji PRO, a przede wszystkim zwiększyła się moja widoczność jako tłumacza, co umożliwiło mi nawiązanie wielu nowych kontaktów. Grazie ProZ.com!
Takk for den flotte jobben dere gjør. Uten dere ville jeg ikke ha jobbet som oversetter!
Sì- è un buon investimento per le ragioni già ampiamente esposte, e non dimenticare che il costo è scaricabile dal reddito imponibile !

Mi sono iscritto a Proz.com semplicemente perchè è la miglior community di traduttori sul web!
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.

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.
Jak dotąd zostanie członkiem Proz.com było moją najlepszą inwestycją w karierę. To kontakty nawiązane przez Proz pozwoliły mi zająć się wyłącznie tłumaczeniem i doskonalić w zawodzie. Gorąco polecam
