Member testimonials


Find premium clients
ProZ.com membership increases your outlook and gives you exposure: You can be found. You are someone, your efforts can be appreciated by others (particularly outsourcers).
At first, I was a non-paying member for a couple of years and I was never contacted by potential clients directly. Becoming a paying member at ProZ.com allowed me to grow as a professional, as a person and as a business.

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!
I have been a paying member of ProZ.com for two years now and I would like to express my satisfaction as regards membership benefits. ProZ.com has opened new horizons to me and within this two fruitful years my clients have more than tripled.
The overwhelming majority of my customers find me through ProZ.com, so to me it makes economic sense.
Becoming a member of ProZ.com was one of the wisest moves I made upon starting to work freelance. I got numerous good clients through the site and never have a shortage of work as a result!

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.

ProZ.com membership has been my best investment by far at this stage of my career as it provides exposure on the global scenario, a chance to share and learn on an on-going basis, very useful linguistic resources, and an invaluable e-atmosphere.
ProZ.com est la plateforme par excellence où le traducteur professionnel peut trouver plus de travail et la réponse à de différentes questions par rapport à ses traductions. En plus, ProZ.com offre plusieurs cours de capacitation et une large gamme de logiciels de traduction à des prix réduits. Les services offerts par ProZ.com sont d’une qualité impeccable et 100% fiables. La cotisation annuelle vaut la peine!
The investment in membership has consistently paid itself off, both through new clients and perhaps even more importantly access to the Blue Board.
It's simple: ProZ.com exposure keeps helping me in finding new clients, while I keep myself busy translating for my existing clients.
I have been a paying member of ProZ.com for two years now and I would like to express my satisfaction as regards membership benefits. I used to work for more than 25 years locally and ideally with people from the capital. ProZ.com has opened new horizons to me and within this two fruitful years my clients have more than tripled. ProZ.com keep up the good work!

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

In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
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.

Add enjoyment to your work
I think the site is very helpful to translators and I would like to spread the word around, so that every translator could benefit from the high quality of the site and also have the opportunity to share many doubts with other translators.

For the past months as I begun my membership in ProZ it has been nothing but excitement, fun, learning and giving, as well as meeting colleagues, working with them, receiving the help many times needed and a great place to step into. Life becomes easier with people like you backing us!
I am lucky that I am high in the directory for my language pair. I get more direct requests than I can keep up with and the rest of my jobs are referrals.

I have joined the ProZ community in March this Year, and believe me in just 3 months I have felt like being a part of a family which is always there to support me for my betterment. Offers are on a rise, as well as the rates. It is this membership which has given me a forum which also had a positive impact on my personality. I am much-much more confident and ready for challenges which was not there earlier.
I never regret my decision to join ProZ.com, because I find it both rewarding and enjoyable to be a member of the world's largest portal for translators and interpreters.
Je suis satisfait d'être membre payant. J'ai même rempilé pour 5 ans.
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!

En lo personal, considero que la inscripción en ProZ.com es una de las mejores inversiones de mi vida.
I so much enjoy the Proz site and can hardly imagine life without it these days!
Grande opportunità per tutti i traduttori. La membership dà vantaggi non indifferenti. E' molto importante sul piano professionale ed il rapporto prezzo qualità è eccezionale!
ProZ.com — лучший, на мой взгляд, сайт для профессиональных переводчиков. Это не только удобная площадка для общения с коллегами, но и полезный информационный ресурс. А самое главное — это реальная возможность приобрести новых клиентов.

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.
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 am regularly headhunted by prospective clients, because they've seen my profile on ProZ.com. That's why I stay.
