Announcing mid-year membership campaign, 2011

Dear ProZians,

If you are already a paying member of, thank you! Your support is what makes possible, and allows new features and improvements to be introduced, such as those listed in the recent mid-year report to members. As the value of membership grows, so does the number of members, which in turn benefits everyone in the community. In a recent survey on member satisfaction, over 93% said they would recommend membership to others. If you have seen a return on your membership investment, please spread the word!

Not yet a member?

If you are an active user of but have not yet invested in membership, now is the best time to consider joining. A mid-year membership campaign is underway, and will last until the 6th of July.

Job flow through the site, on the increase again after the end of 2009, is at an all-time high. Job flow refers not only to posted jobs-- while there are as many as 200 job postings made per day (many of them member-only postings), the most common way that clients and translators meet at is through directory and profile searches. Members receive greatly heightened exposure to these searches, appearing, for example, in the first layer of directory results, before non-members. Members with strong profiles report client contact that far outweighs that which a non-member can expect.

Job flow is just one aspect of the site which members enjoy. has a host of tools and opportunites designed to help you go where you want to go with your business. You can see a list of member benefits here.

On top of all of the tools and opportunities that members enjoy (such as full access to all of the site's features and archives and the highest levels of profile exposure in search engines), is simply the leading source of new clients for translators. Consider using as a serious tool to open the way to new opportunities, new clients and smarter business.

In evaluating membership, you may want to see what other members have said about their membership. Be sure to check out testimonials from current members.

Further incentives and ongoing prize drawings

An incentive to join during this campaign is that by joining now, you will have membership until July, 2012-- that is up to over one month of free membership, depending on how soon you join.

There will be more prizes and more winners during this campaign. First, those who purchase new membership or renew during the campaign will also have the chance to win one of these prizes:

  1. an iPad2 (2 winners)

  2. a Kindle™ e-book reader (5 winners)

  3. a copy of SDL Trados Studio 2009 (3 winners)*

In addition, there will be frequent prize drawings throughout the campaign, held from among those who have joined or renewed so far. This means that the earlier you join or renew, the better your chances of winning (if you join before the first prize drawing, for example, you participate in all successive drawings, and the earlier in the campaign, the smaller the pool of participants). Prizes include free membership, translator training, translator software, and a few other surprises. At least one prize giveaway will be held every three days during the campaign. Prize winners will appear on the home page and will also be listed here.

To join under this offer, or to review the benefits of membership and see testimonials from members, visit the campaign page.

Now is also a great time to renew

Now is also a great time to renew if you are already a paying member; extend your current membership by 12 months (no membership is lost), participate in the overall prize drawing and participate in the ongoing prize drawings as well.

If you have questions about membership, or need answers or help regarding anything else at, do not hesitate to contact staff through the online support system. Support chat will also be available on the campaign page for questions and help with membership.

Best regards,

and the rest of the team
