The ProZ.com team is proud to announce this first new feature of the Plus service package: the ProZ.com Plus-subscriber video library.

(This is part of the Plus package rollout that began today: http://www.proz.com/about-plus-package)

ProZ.com has been the leading venue for translation industry training for over ten years. Thousands of courses have been given by hundreds of industry experts, in multiple languages, on topics such as medical, legal or technical translation, interpreting, use of CAT tools, business marketing, risk management and much more.

Until now, members have been able to purchase recordings from past trainings at prices between $10 and $99. Now, over 600 of the videos are being released for unlimited, anytime viewing by Plus subscribers at no additional cost.

If you were to purchase each of the videos individually, the cost would be over $9900.

As you will notice, the design of the new Plus video area is a familiar one, reminiscent of Youtube. Use the clean, functional new video area for continuing professional development, networking, and maybe even to generate supplemental income. Video creators are being paid based on how frequently the videos are viewed (with the money coming out of what you have already paid for your Plus subscription.)

Do you have any questions or ideas related to the new Plus-subscriber video library? Kevin and Nate and the rest of the ProZ.com team want your feedback to make this – and each Plus subscriber feature we are about to release – as useful as possible for you!

Very pleased with the video library Nov 15, 2016

Very excited to see that the video library is available! In the past I often had to give up on exploring some resources I was interested in, simply because it would cost too much. Now there is so much to watch. I hope the library will continue to be expanded.

Viewing time? Nov 15, 2016

Is there some information somewhere on the length of each video? Before I start watching I want to know whether I am letting myself in for a 10-minute or a 60-minute session, but I can't immediately see where this information is provided.

Fantastic page, and a great way to kick off the new Plus package Nov 15, 2016

A great, single access point, and very nicely designed. Hats off to Kevin and Nate! Looking forward to watching me some videos, and of course to the other Plus package stuff.

Michael

Training sessions attended Nov 16, 2016

Will the videos we watch here be added to the "Training sessions attended" section on our profiles?

Hi Sarah,

There is still work to be done to make this possible, but yes, it is on the road map - for videos that are watched until completion.

My list is already ridiculously long - it looks as though I spend all my day learning and won't have time to actually do any work! I'm all for listing my in-person conferences attended and my in-person CAT course, but most of them are trivial. PLEASE let us choose which ones to display BEFORE you add loads more.

Hi Sheila,

Thanks for the feedback. How about if there is a pop-up when you reach the end of a video that allows you to add it to your "Training sessions attended" if you so choose?

IMO it would be much more convenient if we were just given more control over the items in our profile pages, so that we could actually manage them. (e.g. WWA, Conferences, Sessions, Keywords, etc.)

agree Nov 17, 2016

You're right, it would be great if we could choose the videos we want to add and also remove items that are already on our list.

Search filters Nov 18, 2016

Thanks this is a great value! I'd love to see more search filters. I'm thinking like Amazon: most viewed, highest rated, most relevant, date produced, etc.

Thanks Kevin!

Search filters Nov 18, 2016

Hi Russell,

Thanks for the feedback! Over time, and as we begin to collect more data on what translators are watching and interested in, we will be able to provide better search results and recommendations.

For now, on the main page (http://videos.proz.com/) you can filter any search by:
- Views
- Rating
- Newest (Date produced)

Also, if you are watching a particular video, we have a rudimentary recommendation engine in place off to the right side of the screen.

As the platform gets more use we will be able to improve that with better recommendations.

course materials Jan 20, 2017

Hi there,

Thanks for this fantastic list of videos. I´ve been watching some of them of they´re really great stuff.

Just a quick question, can I have access to the presenter´s course materials, having a plus membership, or not? For instance, the excel file, or links, if they were available at a particular video/course presentation.

In the course description, under ADDITIONAL COURSE MATERIALS, there is a link called "View course materials". But when I click on it, I get redirected to the enrolment options page of the course.

Cheers,
