(2) Prepare to raise your income in 2014 by improving your profile
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you want to raise your freelance income in 2014 -- by meeting new clients, getting better work, and earning higher rates -- lay the groundwork now by improving your profile at ProZ.com.

ProZ.com is the number one source of new clients for translators. To make that work for you, your profile must represent you accurately and professionally, and clearly indicate a specialty that sets you apart from the crowd.

A few hours or days invested in filling out your profile now will pay dividends for the rest of your career.

Use the following guide to help you enter the profile information that is most important for meeting new clients and getting good jobs:

(3) Experience listed in profiles can now increase automatically
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When a new client evaluates whether to hire you as a freelancer, the length of your professional experience is often an important consideration.

To help you keep the experience listed in your ProZ.com profile up to date, it's now possible for your length of experience to be automatically increased every month. (Experience can also be specified down to the month now, where formerly it could be specified only in years.)

Click here to review and update the length of experience in your profile:

(6) Localization spotlight: the Armenian localization team
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Each month, the ProZ.com newsletter features an article highlighting one of the ProZ.com localization teams and the work they are doing to bring the ProZ.com site to their native languages.

This month's spotlight is on the the Armenian localization team:

Henrik Pipoyan -- http://www.proz.com/profile/9220
Zara Khanjyan -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1432774
Karen Sughyan -- http://www.proz.com/translator/132657
Anna Mirakyan -- http://www.proz.com/profile/801272
Tatevik Hovhannisyan -- http://www.proz.com/translator/59700
Hasmik Avetyan -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1744363


Henrik Pipoyan, the team leader of the Armenian L10n team, had this to say about the team's work:

"A site that serves as home and a meeting place for translators and translation agencies from all the corners of the globe should be translated into as many languages as possible just to show anyone who visits the site that we can do what we advertise on this site. All the members of the Armenian localization team are seasoned professionals who do their best to make Armenian part of the ProZ.com family of languages. No matter how many Armenians visit the site and how many of them use the Armenian version, it's good to know that Armenian is one of the languages of the site and someone who doesn't speak any other language except for Armenian can easily use the site and find a translator."

If you are a ProZ.com member and you would like to join a localization team in your native language, contact site staff to volunteer.
