I was searching the Web today for more sites like PROZ...
Sometimes, it is against the rules to mention competitors' sites on the forums, and the thread that mentions it gets deleted. So, while the thread still exists...
I came across a site called "Translation Directory" and I wanted to know if anyone had ever heard of it?
Most people who ask about the Translation Directory do so because they want to buy lists of translation agencies, but from your questions I gather that you want a place to register yourself, so that clients can find you. Is that right?
Yes, it has existed for a long time. It's free to register. I did a search for freelancers in my own language combination, and saw many names that I recognise. The rates vary from extremely low to reasonably okay to unrealistically high. I think one should register anyway, to get yet another mention of one's name on the web.
Most importantly, I wanted to hear peoples success stories regarding this site and see if it is a scam or actually something worth keeping?
It's not a scam.
On this same note, do any of you know of other sites like PROZ where one can market their services and get linguistic work?
There are a few, but this thread will definitely be deleted if we mention them.
