I must say that I continue to be breathless at how well ProZ.com anticipates / accommodates the needs of freelance translators. . . I was tearing my hair out and tossing small wads of money down the drain trying to find an invoicing program that did only what yours now does and nothing more.
ProZ.com is een hoogst betrouwbare referte.
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.

ProZ.com is echt de beste website/verzamelplaats voor vertalers en iedereen die werkt met taal.

The site is very, very helpful. And meeting even one client can pay for the membership costs!

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).
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!

When I started freelancing almost ten years ago, I used a variety of methods to reach out to potential clients. I placed an ad in the local yellow pages (no lead whatsoever), I sent out hundreds of emails to translation agencies (this landed me a couple of jobs), but by far the most efficient way of promotion was using the features that are available on 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.

Investment is not just spending money. Investing implies practical activities to achieve the results. Therefore, membership itself does not guarantee your success. However, being able to use the full functionality offers great opportunities.

A me ProZ.com, scoperto nel 2003 navigando, ha portato una vera e propria nuova carriera globale. Scoprendo ProZ.com mi si è aperta una carriera a livello globale con clienti da tutte le parti del mondo e nel giro di pochi mesi. Io lo consiglio.
I am really happy that I`ve joined the ProZ.com family, I have always been satisfied with this work group.
I hope after 30 yrs, I will say these things again!
Thank you all!
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.
From the first time I came across with ProZ.com on I can’t live without the best translation and interpreting website all over the world. The investment in Platinum Membership has certainly paid itself off through new contacts and a most comprehensive network support. What more can I ask? ProZ.com, thank you very much for being there!


Get and give professional advice
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 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.

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

ProZ.com is a new higher level society and new way of thinking for translators!
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.

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

Add enjoyment to your 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!
Io sono membro pagante e secondo me vale la pena, se pensi che con un lavoro o due (dipende dalle dimensioni, naturalmente!) hai già coperto la spesa. Ti dà anche più visibilità, accesso al Blue Board, e anche la possibilità di fare l'hosting un'eventuale sito web personale (incluso nel prezzo).
ProZ.com me llena de estímulo, alegría, aprendizaje. Me da la posibilidad de conocer colegas, trabajar, recibir la ayuda que tantas veces se necesita. Gracias por lo cambios en el área de trabajos, los he utilizado en muchas ocasiones y son maravillosos!

ProZ.com è il sito migliore al mondo, dove il nostro lavoro e la loro organizzazione trovano completa armonia. Grazie per quanto avete fatto e quanto farete ancora in futuro
After several years of free membership I decided to change its status to a paid member ... and I regret that I waited so long!

ProZ.com to pierwsze, co przychodzi mi na myśl, kiedy ktoś mnie pyta, na czym polega praca tłumacza.

考え方としては国内の翻訳会社だけではなく、広く世界の翻訳会社も対象に入れて自分を売り込むことが肝心です。そのために、一番良いのはProZ.comのメンバーになることだと思います
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.
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.
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.

A ponadto wielu z moich najlepszych klientów znalazło mnie właśnie poprzez ProZ.com.Kwota uzyskana z ich zleceń wystarczyłaby na opłacenie składki członkowskiej ProZa na następne... 1000 lat! Niezły zwrot z inwestycji, prawda?
Thanks to ProZ.com I got in touch with all my major clients years ago.
Boa oportunidade para todos os tradutores. Vou de certeza recomendar a adesão. Acho que é uma grande oportunidade profissional. Não percam esta possibilidade incrível!
Grand Merci! J'apprécie énormément l'aide que ProZ.com apporte aux traducteurs à travers le monde entier. Toutes mes félicitations et je vous exhorte à continuer votre excellent travail! Merci Infiniment!
