Инвестиция — это не просто вложение средств. Инвестирование предполагает осуществление практических действий для достижения результата, поэтому само по себе приобретение членства не является залогом успеха. Однако полноценное участие в работе площадки открывает значительные возможности.

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.
A sound return on investment, I would say. :)
Most of my best clients have contacted me through my profile on ProZ.com.
It has always been very useful for me. I would recommend anyone to join ProZ.com. I got there some of my most exciting jobs. I even became a supplier for interpreting services for a very big multinational through ProZ.com.
I was very skeptical when I joined ProZ.com, but I have to say that being a member really pays! I found new clients in just five months of membership.
Being a paying member of ProZ.com opens the door to a whole new fantastic world for translators, not only because clients treat you more seriously and you get more job offers, but also because by having the opportunity to use all site features, you increase your translation business knowledge immensely and thus become more confident and productive.
I am convinced that without ProZ.com, I would never have made the contacts I need to work as a full time professional translator. Not only have I received job offers, but I have also established valuable relationships with other translators which have evolved into a mutual support network of trusted colleagues. I would especially encourage you to try to answer KudoZ questions. This will help you build your research skills and demonstrate your competence to fellow translators.
While I have been part of the community for more than five years, I just became a member last month. I cannot believe how many contacts I have made since becoming a (paying) member... I have three new clients and these are some of the best clients I have ever had.
I'm still in shock that we got the (popular children's character) contract -- it involves work that will go more than a year. And where did the editor-in-chief at their corporate offices in NYC, find me? At my profile on ProZ.com. I tell you, I've never gotten so much out of so little investment.

I am very pleased with ProZ.com, consider it a valuable resource and have met quite a few clients through it. So for me it is a worthy investment.

ProZ.com is echt de beste website/verzamelplaats voor vertalers en iedereen die werkt met taal.

Som platiaci člen od roku 2005. Členstvo mi prináša mnoho zákazníkov. Zdá sa, že to bola veľmi dobrá investícia.

Salah satu manfaat besar dengan menjadi anggota berbayar ProZ.com ialah dapat sepenuhnya mencari informasi pada Blue Board dan forum. Kebanyakan agensi (kira-kira 40% dari pelanggan saya) mengetahui profil saya dari ProZ.com.
My workload has climbed steadily since I became a member... Another great advantage is the Blue Board... My latest (very big) job came through ProZ.com, so I would say: "Go for it!"


Get and give professional advice
In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
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 not only our workplace, it's also a worldwide, developing community of people in translation business.

What I like most at ProZ.com is the relationship between the ProZ.com staff and us, the members. I felt that, while other sites are only after the money, you really care about us and about the way you can help us. This is very important.

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 past year has been great. I woke up one morning deciding to go back to translating full time but I was not 100% sure that my decision was the right one. I left my "safe" English teaching job and recontacted my old clients. It didn't take long and I was soon back on track. Thanks to ProZ I have made contacts with new agencies around the world. I have met colleagues worldwide and found new friends... Words are my passion and this is the ideal job for me with growing children who love to see me around. My small office at home is not a lonely place at all and may I say I have never been happier. Thanks
ProZ.com is a new higher level society and new way of thinking for translators!
This is simply the best, most comprehensive support network and best moderated web site I could wish for as a translator.

Add enjoyment to your work
When I first started providing freelance translations I found ProZ.com a great source of information and helpful in many ways. Now it is part of my daily routine. To me ProZ.com not only means job offers, but it is a community and knowledge base and makes me enjoy work even more. Thanks to everybody working for ProZ.com to provide this page and for ever being helpful!

Da membro pagante invece è possibile rispondere a tutti gli annunci e poi soprattutto leggere i commenti dei colleghi nella Blue Board.

Ho deciso di diventare membro per poter usufruire di tutto ciò che offre questo portale, nella speranza di fare molte esperienze!
Thanks to ProZ.com I got in touch with all my major clients years ago.
In 3 years as a Proz member I have got quite a lot of work through having a profile here. That's the keyword: p r o f i l e.

ProZ.com is echt de beste website/verzamelplaats voor vertalers en iedereen die werkt met taal. Ik ben onlangs ook begonnen het gratis Proz invoicing systeem te gebruiken, en het is fantastisch! Ga vooral zo door!

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!

ProZ.com is a more than liable reference.
Just another sign of quality: I systematically cross-check translation offers from other sites with the Blue Board database...
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.

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.
Sì- è un buon investimento per le ragioni già ampiamente esposte, e non dimenticare che il costo è scaricabile dal reddito imponibile !

ProZ.com is a very good marketplace for any translator ... The membership fee is really nothing compared to what you might get from here in the long term.

Приобретение членства - это реальная инвестиция в развитие бизнеса. Вот уже пять лет мы постоянно увеличиваем клиентскую базу, наращиваем прибыль и эффективно развиваемся. Мы напрямую связываем успешность нашего предприятия с приобретением членства Proz.com!
Io sono membro pagante e secondo me vale la pena, se pensi che con un lavoro o due (dipende dalle dimensioni, naturalmente!) hai già coperto la spesa. Ti dà anche più visibilità, accesso al Blue Board, e anche la possibilità di fare l'hosting un'eventuale sito web personale (incluso nel prezzo).
I so much enjoy the Proz site and can hardly imagine life without it these days!
La membresía profesional, entre otras cosas, te da acceso inmediato a notificaciones de trabajo y acceso al Blue Board, un registro muy útil en el que los compañeros dejamos indicaciones sobre la fiabilidad de las agencias. Te salvará de disgustos con malos clientes.
