hi colleagues,
I knew proz.com one year ago and now I would like to enter as membership. I ask you some impressions, namely if this could be good or not. Please tell me something about it.
thanking you in advance ,
Daniela

Indispensible Jun 1, 2010

My opinion: Indispensable for two reasons:

1. The BlueBoard - where avoiding one bad payer will cover your subscription

2. The Translators' Directory - where clients go looking for translators.

We've had this question many times before... Jun 1, 2010

Try searching for "membership" and you should find your questions answered. I joined recently, and it paid for itself very quickly.

You MIGHT get a more objective answer... Jun 2, 2010

Differs from one translator to another in terms of jobs Jun 2, 2010

There are so many factors that will decide whether you can get jobs or how many jobs you can get from Proz.com, like your language combination, your location, your expertise, your communication and marketing skill, your visibility, your price...

I guess you have to try it out yourself.

But a membership is not all about jobs. A member has access to a number of other interesting/important features: blueboard, participating in translation contests, tracking visitors, suggesting polls...

Channel to go international Jun 3, 2010

Hi Daniela,

In my case, ProZ.com serves as the channel to go international. Before joining this site, my clients were mainly local post-graduate students. After joining this site, I can reach both national and international clients.

Best Wishes

Hipyan
