Hello! I'm a newbie on proz, and will be much appreciate to have my profile reviewed. Any information about effective quotes would be also welcome.

Sample translations on one's profile page - how many is considered too many? ))


What else should be improved in my profile in order for it to be more attractive for clients?




WWAs and/or recommendations from clients outside the ProZ community. For instance, most of my clients too are bound by so strict internal confidentiality rules that they can't make any comment public or they are not allowed to subscribe to ProZ or similar sites. So, there's some imbalance in comparison with some colleagues who work in less "sensible" domains and may display dozens of WWAs on their profiles.

Hi! I would welcome a profile review to attract more clients and focus on the key information clients look for when they examine profiles at Proz.com


Just a second eye on the profile...


I would love to get my profile reviewed and would welcome any advice to improve it. I would also like to get magic tips on making a good quotation. I had been a paid member for the past year but I don't think I earned significant return. I hope I can make the most out of my profile and re-upgrade my membership.

Hi! Yes, please, I would like a review and some advice about my profile, thanks!


Hi, I would like to optimise my profile highlighting my education and all my years of experience in the Science field and minimising the impact of no having formal translation qualifications yet (apart from a Letter of Credit from the CIoL Dip Trans (Science and General translations, Merit; currently working on the last unit for the certificate). I have been translating unofficially all those years working in medical research though. Any suggestions will be very much appreciated. Thanks!

Hi, I would like have to highlight my qualifications to make up for my current little experience in my profile. I have a bachelor's degree in translation and interpreting, specific language certifications and some specialized courses. However I am not very sure about how to introduce them. I am also not very sure about what is a reasonable payment rate for me, taking into account that I don't have much professional experience yet. Anything you think can help me to get started will be welcomed.


I would like to see Proz.com raising awareness of itself among leading companies (in my case leading defence manufacturers, especially in US/UK/Europe). The aim would be to make it the first choice of the companies to seek a translator at Proz.com.

I would like to know how to set my rates. The rates in Central Europe are lower than those in Western Europe and the range is really wide based on what I have read in discussions on this topic.

I would like to know how to submit an attractive quote. I've submitted many but I think have only had one reply which didn't ultimately amount to anything.

I'd like to receive some advice on how to improve my profile, because for the moment the Proz site is my main tool for finding clients/ being found by them. It is already pretty effective, but of course I'd like to know what else I can do to improve my profile visibility and its attractiveness to potential clients.


I would like to have my profile reviewed. It would also be helpful to learn how to submit an attractive vote and how to formulate an effective cover letter.

Like most of my colleagues here, I'd like to know what an outsider's impression of my profile is and to find out how ways in which it could be improved.

Hello, Like many of us, I would like to have my profile checked and get some advice on quotes and rates in order to receive signed orders ... more often ..., i.e. to have a competitive edge and induce a more positive attitude on the part of the customer.

Thank you for this opportunity to get to know how I personally can improve my profile and what I lack:) As many of us, I would also appreciate any tips concerning keywords for search optimization and price.


I am at the very beginning as a translator. How can I make my profile interesting to potential clients, anyway?


I would like to know more details on how to make our profile more attractive for translators and also for customers...some tips and tricks :)

I have been a translator for nearly 5 years but would still like an expert opinion on my profile and tips on successful quoting techniques.




If there's just one thing I need to change in my profile to make it perfect (well, nothing is perfect, so let's say "attractive") for viewers, what would it be?

Our profile is our letter of introduction to customers. It's an important tool to market ourselves and stand out. I'm just starting out in the online business and, since it is very different from a face-to-face introduction, I would like to make a good impression on potential clients and believe I need help with my profile, thus, would like for it to be reviewed by a professional.

I would like a review on my profile to attract more clients. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!


I would like to have my profile reviewed. I have difficulties since I am a kind of an all rounder translator, which has proven to do me more harm than good, so far. I am concerned since I will not be able to stay online much longer because of my schedule today, so I do not know if I could benefit from this session. Still, if there is a way to get any assistance, I would appreciate if someone from ProZ could let me know.


I would like to have a profile review to prop my profile up. Any helpful hints and tips, suggestions and buzz words are welcome!


I'm going to become a member...unfortunately at the moment nobody asked for me even if I'm a sworn translator, multilingual. How can I improve my visibility?


I am also interested in submitting my Proz.com profile for a review, getting hints and advice. Anything that my help me/us underline my strong points as a freelancer and professional is welcome.


I would like to have my profile reviewed. Thank you!


I would love to have my profile reviewed and I'd be very grateful for any advice I could get.


I would like to have my profile reviewed. Thank you very much.
