Since 1999, members of this community have helped change the translator's profession from what was once a solitary pursuit into a more interactive, more efficient, more rewarding and more profitable one. This collaborative effort has led to such resources as the KudoZ term help network, the Blue Board, online translator training, powwows, both in-person and virtual conferences, online invoicing, the Certified PRO Network, industry reports for freelancers, and much more. These shared tools have, in turn, benefited each member and anyone who uses
