How much time did it take you to get constant work when you started working on proz.com?

I'm not getting constant work via ProZ.com.

ProZ.com's features that allow translators to find clients and vice versa should be just one item in your list of marketing activities. It is possible that some of the clients who appear to have found me by word of mouth actually found me via ProZ.com, but they don't always specifically say "I found you at ProZ.com", and I usually forget to ask "where did you find me".

By the way, your profile page looks nicely filled out, but is there any particular reason why you don't put spaces between your sentences in English? Do you think that when clients see that, they will have more confidence in your skill as a translator, or less? By the time a client visits your profile page, you've made some sort of shortlist already, but if you drop off of that list because of typing errors, it's a shame.
