~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(1) Client flow continues to increase
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Client flow through ProZ.com, already on the rise through 2010, continues to grow in 2011. July saw the second highest amount of work ever passed through the site, after the record high in March of this year.

Remember that while there are as many as 200 job postings made per day (many of them member-only postings), the most common way that clients and translators meet at ProZ.com is through directory and profile searches. By design, this traffic is directed first to members, who receive greatly heightened exposure to these searches, appearing, for example, in the first layer of directory results, before non-members.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(2) Congratulations to the grand prize winners from the mid-year campaign
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Congratulations to the grand prize winners from the mid-year membership campaign! Two iPads, five Kindle e-book readers, and three licenses for SDL Trados Studio 2009 were given away, along with the daily prize giveaways.

Over 1,000 new members have joined ProZ.com! This is good news for all members. With more than 18,000 members, ProZ.com continues to advance as the world's largest community of translation professionals.
