I am thinking of applying to become a PRO here on ProZ.

I am wondering what kind of content I should provide in the sample translation. What did you translate to become a ProZ PRO?

Does the length of your membership have anything to say? I only joined a couple of days ago. Should I wait a while before I apply?

I also chose to be reviewed by 3 colleagues for my translation so that that acceptance could be faster. Unexpectedly it was fast.
