(2) More choice when it comes to your membership
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The ProZ.com site team has been working on introducing more choice into your ProZ.com membership.

You can now choose between two service packages for membership, depending on your needs:

1. The Standard service package includes all of the benefits and services you already enjoy.

2. A new Plus package will be released on November 15. This package, designed with the needs of full-time professional freelancers in mind, will include everything in the Standard package PLUS certain extras. Special pre-registration pricing is available for this service package until November 15.

See what each service package includes and compare features: http://www.proz.com/professional-membership#comparison-table-section

A promotional campaign is underway to introduce the new service packages. Significant incentives are being offered, so you may want to consider renewing your membership at this time. Please note that you do not lose any of the remaining value of your current membership when renewing early.

ProZ.com Founder and President Henry Dotterer spoke about the new choices in membership recently, at the virtual conference celebrating International Translation Day.

(6) Open Road story 1: Biljana Stojanovic
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"As we all know, marketing is a vital aspect of a freelance career. Some of us are capable of making new connections easily, finding customers by meeting people and making phone calls. But, like the majority of translators, I am an introvert. I became a member of ProZ.com, I made a profile, and I became a Certified PRO. In the beginning, nothing happened. However, after only one year, I must say that the results are very visible. I have had some interesting jobs, and I’ve acquired at least five very good clients through ProZ.com."

ProZ.com member Biljana Stojanovic -- http://www.proz.com/translator/1920943 -- is an English into Serbian translator specializing in chemistry, pharmaceuticals, and engineering. She was the first Apple Watch winner.

(7) Open Road story 2: Marjon Pijl
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"As a freelance translator, I am free to choose the jobs that I am interested in. It makes me happy working on a project that is a challenge for my translating skills. Having to think for an hour about a sentence or even a word and finally finding exactly what I was looking for is very satisfying. Sometimes I am so absorbed in a translation project that I suddenly realize that my stomach is rumbling with hunger because I have forgotten to eat for hours. Once I read a translation after finishing it and I see that it fits in all respects, it feels like I’ve successfully conquered a tall mountain and I’m standing at the top, enjoying the view. That is what translating is about for me!"

ProZ.com member Marjon Pijl -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1304965 -- is a Spanish to Dutch translator operating under the company name "Hasta Luego." She is also a professional psychologist, and is based in the Netherlands. She was the second winner of an Apple Watch.
