What are the benefits of participating in the network?
Participating in the ProZ.com Certified PRO Network will provide a powerful new means for top professionals to distinguish themselves as such, through not only demonstration of their unique capabilities (in keeping with published industry standards), but also through peer/client/supplier review and, perhaps soon, verified track records. In time, this network will provide an easier way for top professionals and top companies to meet and do work, particularly when that work has to be done right and is paid accordingly.
What are the requirements for getting certified?
Note: ProZ.com professional membership is required for admittance into the Certified PRO Network for freelance translators and ProZ.com business membership is required for businesses; beyond that, there is no additional charge for participation.
Screening for the network is now continuous. To date there are:
4851ProZ.com Certified PRO freelancers
So far I'm impressed with quality and detailed level of thought and feedback people are putting in, plus the fact that people are motivated by what's good for the industry rather than their own self-interest.
The ProZ.com certified PRO network is great. Another member asked me to team up with her as a translator-reviewer couple for one of her new clients... I think it will be nice to work with her.
I like the positive attitude from all parties, I like the openness of staff and the flexible/quick adjustments.
