(1) Mid-year report to members, 2011
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The mid-year report to members, detailing some of the accomplishments so far in 2011, was published on May 18th. Among the items worth noting: client contact is up, and the development of an online translation center which has enabled Translators without Borders to scale up its activities significantly this year.

Thank you to all ProZ.com members for your membership investment, and making this and other accomplishments possible!

(3) Thank you for investing in your business through ProZ.com!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you for supporting ProZ.com through your membership investment. Your membership is what makes accomplishments such as those in the recent mid-year report to members possible (see above).

A mid-year membership campaign is beginning. If you are happy with your ProZ.com membership, please tell a friend!

Keep in mind that renewing your membership during a campaign is also a good deal, even if your renewal date occurs after the campaign. No membership is lost (12 months are added to your current membership), and you have the ability to participate in the prize drawings, which will be different during this campaign-- at least one drawing will be held every three days throughout the month, with winners receiving free membership, translator training, software, and other surprises.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(4) A simple choice for a translator's business
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Over 17,000 translators, interpreters and other language professionals are benefiting from investing in their business through membership at ProZ.com. If you are in doubt, or have not considered it before, ProZ.com membership is a simple choice.

During the mid-year campaign, you can join ProZ.com as a member and begin receiving the benefits for your business. Now is the best time to join, with added incentives and constant prize drawings during the campaign for extra membership, translator training and software, and other surprises. The earlier you join, the better your chances of winning, and the sooner you can begin to take full advantage of the world's largest community of language professionals. Don't get left behind.
