Find premium clients
I have found almost all of my clients through ProZ.com. Benefits of full membership in this site is worth of every penny I paid. For me and many other professionals in this industry, ProZ.com is now a sector standard and reference point.

To date I have signed 10 contracts with 10 agencies, the result of ProZ.com's solid support and my strategic perseverance.

When I started freelancing almost ten years ago, I used a variety of methods to reach out to potential clients. I placed an ad in the local yellow pages (no lead whatsoever), I sent out hundreds of emails to translation agencies (this landed me a couple of jobs), but by far the most efficient way of promotion was using the features that are available on ProZ.com.

Being a member has enabled me to contact many new clients, most of which I now receive regular work from. Next to professional qualifications, ProZ.com membership is the best investment a translator can make.
I have acquired 60% of the total number of my clients via ProZ.com. The site is extremely efficient and is visited by serious outsourcers. Therefore, I will stay with the site!
One of the main benefits of being a paying member of ProZ.com is having full access to Blue Board information and site forums. What's more, most of my clients have found me via my ProZ.com profile.
Most of my best clients have contacted me through my profile on ProZ.com.
I became a ProZ.com paying member this year and it has proven to be the smartest business decision I have made in the past 10 years.

Članstvo na Prozu otvara vrata potpuno novog, fantastičnog sveta za prevodioce zbog toga što vas klijenti tretiraju ozbiljnije i što dobijate više poslovnih ponuda.
ProZ.com is terrific. I would not have a translation career without these past 7 years as a member. Between the technology and the global marketplace provided by ProZ.com, there's never been a better time to be a translator. No ProZ.com, no translation career. Thanks ProZ.com!
It's definitely worth it. I've been a registered user at ProZ.com since 2002, but only started getting jobs through the site after becoming a member. The membership fee paid back after the first order.
Paid membership at ProZ.com has been a good investment in the last 1-2 years. Several agencies have contacted me with offers, some of which I have taken up.

Most of my new clients now come from ProZ.com, and I have to say that fine-tuning my profile has generated some pretty good "matches" (clients that are willing to pay my rates for specific subject areas). I think ProZ.com is a great source of new clients and it is also hugely helpful in avoiding bad payers.
ProZ.com è il sito migliore al mondo, dove il nostro lavoro e la loro organizzazione trovano completa armonia.
Sin duda ProZ.com nos acerca a los profesionales de todo el mundo, alienta nuestro desarrollo y capacitación desde una perspectiva abierta, y plural acorde a la demanda y a los desafíos que nos presenta el mercado actual.
¡Una vez más elijo y estoy satisfecha con los servicios y propuestas del sitio!

ProZ.com is not only our workplace, it's also a worldwide, developing community of people in translation business.
Gabor Kun

Our common experiences as translators, the sharing of worries, doubts, questions in our forums regarding ONE TOPIC: TRANSLATION, all this has already created a warm, welcoming and caring community,
complete with powwows and special personal friendships.

Thanks for creating an inspiring place for us.
ProZ.com has acted as my guide. With my ProZ.com membership, I'm a happy, fully-fledged freelancer and I can safely say that I wouldn't be where I am today without the knowledge that I have gained from the site or the friendly community support network. Thank you!

This is simply the best, most comprehensive support network and best moderated web site I could wish for as a translator.

In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
U vielmi mnohich vypadkach samaja pieršaja zamova, atrymanaja praz ProZ.com, bolš čym całkam pakryvaje hadavy ŭniosak.
Bır de 10 yıllık üyelik ücreti olmasi gerekir. Onun daha avantajli bir fiyati vardi. Ben vakti zamaninda 10 yil için üye olmustum. Pek dogal olarak bunun fiyati senelik üyelige göre daha avantajli idi.
The KudoZ section has become a regular part of my daily working routine. I can always count on it for useful information and interesting linguistic and cultural tidbits, as well as insights into my colleagues backgrounds and thought processes.

ProZ.com is a new higher level society and new way of thinking for translators!


Add enjoyment to your work
I am proud that I am with ProZ.com from the very beginning. A grandiose idea of one gifted visionary Henry of Syracuse to melt together the language lovers from all over the world had settled in my heart forever. It is an exquisite pleasure and refined delight. Long Live ProZ!

When I renew, I will probably do so for another ten-year period. Let me take this opportunity to recommend ten-year membership to everybody who reads these messages. You do not have to worry about renewing each and every year. It is the best investment you can make. Highly recommended!
I am regularly headhunted by prospective clients, because they've seen my profile on ProZ.com. That's why I stay.

Thanks to ProZ.com I got in touch with all my major clients years ago.
Since I signed up in 1999 the world for me as a freelancer has transformed. There is a 'before' and 'after ProZ.com'

I have thoroughly enjoyed my membership (Dec 2000) for all it offers:

. Job offers (only slowly appearing during my first years - Swedish is a niche language),
. Knowledge sharing (KudoZ, articles, forum postings),
. Views sharing (forums),
. Social contacts (forums, powwows, conferences)
. Fun (forums and meetings)
.Practical help (recommending lodging for my daughter in New York and our stay in London),
. Buying and selling opportunities of lexica, books and programs ('Exchange')
. Expert advice on computer problems and programs (forums)
. Exposure: You can be found. You are someone, your efforts can be appreciated by others
(particularly outsourcers ;-) ) (directory, Connect and KudoZ)
. You can feel 'nest warmth' like in a family or in a club
. You increase your outlook. You get to know how people from other countries and cultures think.
Using the ProZ.com message function and the eMail link or Skype, you can get instant contact
with colleagues across the globe for in-depth individual discussions on all subjects.

I have indeed grown as a professional and as an individual by embracing all the above ProZ.com advantages.

EUR 80/USD 120/year (less for renewals) is a bargain price for what you get!

I couldn't imagine my quickstart as a professional freelancer without ProZ.com. I registered as a user a few months ago to "test drive" the website features. Even without a full membership almost 80% of my current jobs come from ProZ Job Postings. Now that I'm well prepared for freelancing rather than hired as an employee, I expect to establish much more relationships with both agencies and partners.

Thanks ProZ for the valuable tool !!!
En lo personal, considero que la inscripción en ProZ.com es una de las mejores inversiones de mi vida.
I am really glad this web site exists!

ProZ.com is absolutely great! - As a worldwide translators' network and community it combines everything a translator is longing for. It pushes your business while you are winning new friends and sharing language and translation related questions and experiences with people all over the world.
Стать членом сайта, безусловно, стоит. Я зарегистрирована на ProZ.com с 2002 г., но работу через этот сайт стала получать только после того, как приобрела членство. Годовой членский взнос окупился после первого заказа.
I personally see site participation and membership as highly beneficial in a number of ways, including the following:

1. ... "Internet visibility" ...

2. Unrestricted access to the Blue Board.

3. KudoZ as a resource for terms help when needed.

My career as a translator is going very well since I became paying member of ProZ.com. My profile page on ProZ.com has been extremely effective and I put a lot of work in it to make it stand out from the crowd. This pays, I get more and more job requests through ProZ.com and I don't have to reply to jobs anymore because I am always busy. Without ProZ.com I would not have dared taking the step to bring my translation career to a professional level.
I so much enjoy the Proz site and can hardly imagine life without it these days!
ProZ.com is a great community and I am happy to be part of it!

After being a member "for free" for a couple of years, I decided to try by paying my membership for a year, and the result was awesome. I receive at least 2 messages from new clients monthly.
