(1) Year-end report to members, 2011, published

The year-end report to members, detailing some of the accomplishments of the second half of 2011, has been published. Thank you to all members for making these and many other advances at ProZ.com possible.


(2) Changes to Blue Board access for non-members

The Blue Board, the searchable database of language job outsourcers with feedback from service providers, reached over 17,000 outsourcer records this year, and more than 92,000 Likelihood of Working Again (LWA) feedback entries have been made to date. ProZ.com paying members enjoy full access to this risk management tool.

New changes will be made to the Blue Board which will affect your access to records as a non-member.


(3) Take your translation business to new heights

Are you new to the translation industry, looking to get off the ground? Already established but ready for more clients, seeking to expand your business? Or are you happy where you are now, but ready to protect your business against the uncertainty of tomorrow?

Smart translators have been using ProZ.com to take their translation businesses to new heights for the past twelve years.

By joining ProZ.com now you get membership until January 2013, at a discount on the regular price, and the chance to win great prizes, including a vacation trip for two to the Bahamas.


(4) Learn more about increasing your contact with new clients

The ProZ.com site guidance center is a new site area designed to help you increase your contact with new clients, network, differentiate yourself, and otherwise expand your business, improve your work, and have more fun.

The directory and profile searches are the most common channels of workflow at ProZ.com, rather than posted jobs. Find out where you rank (how visible you are to potential clients) and how to improve that ranking.
