After two years at Proz.com, I am addicted - to the humorous, eloquent and co-operative colleagues I have encountered, to KudoZ and to the sheer profusion of job opportunities which have led me to several wonderful outsourcers and outsourceresses. Proz.com contributes generously to the quality of my professional life, I'm in for the duration!
The overwhelming majority of my customers find me through ProZ.com, so to me it makes economic sense.
Thanks to ProZ.com for giving me great opportunities that I have never had before. I have learned a lot from both paying training courses and free virtual conferences, ProZ.com staff have been always wonderful supporters to me, the platform is easy to use and membership has boosted my SEO, the number of my clients and visitors is increasing dramatically.
In less than a month, I have had more jobs than ever and I have already earned back the membership cost. If you are a quick learner, you will find more work than you can handle in a relatively short time!

I joined ProZ.com pretty much in the very beginning. At that time I was a school student. Obviously, I was not a translator back then, but I have followed the site ever since. Actually, it would be fair to say that ProZ.com was the main factor in my gradual gravitation towards becoming a freelance translator. ProZ.com is where a good share of my clients found me, and I cannot imagine what could cause me to cease my membership here. In fact, becoming a full member was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I am now a full-time freelance translator with university education, and I am very happy to be able to say that I have grown up together with ProZ.com!

Salah sijine paedah gedhe sawise dadi anggota ProZ sing mbayar yakuwi bisa sapenake golek katrangan ing Blue Board lan forum. Meh kabeh agensi (kira-kira 40%-e langgananku) entuk katrangan bab aku saka 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.
而 ProZ.com 所舉辦的網上虛擬會議,讓我們瞭解與世界各地的自由譯者之間差距,讓我們從自由譯者的角度去感受,重新思考工作流程,使之後合作更加密切。
I would certainly recommend becoming a paying member at ProZ.com. I started with a free membership, but I have had much more work since I decided to invest in ProZ.com membership. Now I don't have any delay before quoting for a "private" job posting, I have access to the LWA of every outsourcer on the Blue Board, and I can meet fellow translators via the site or at a powwow.
I am really happy that I`ve joined the ProZ.com family, I have always been satisfied with this work group.
I hope after 30 yrs, I will say these things again!
Thank you all!
I joined ProZ.com as a paying member in 2009, and haven't looked back since. I've been "found" through ProZ.com from a simple Google search on many occasions.
Seven years ago, ProZ.com gave me an unexpected opportunity to finally start teleworking in translation.
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).
ProZ.com is het platform bij uitstek om meer werk te vinden. Je vindt er het antwoord op talrijke vertaalvragen. Alles is altijd tot in de puntjes geregeld en 100% betrouwbaar. Het is je jaarlijks lidgeld meer dan waard.
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.


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

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.
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.

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

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.

Add enjoyment to your work
ProZ.com has opened for me a completely new market, complementary to my existing one. I've learnt to apply new tools for marketing, business (software and systems) and translation.
ProZ.com is indispensable for two reasons:
1. The BlueBoard - where avoiding one bad payer will cover your subscription
2. The Translators' Directory - where clients go looking for translators.
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.

اشتركت في بروز.كوم منذ تسع سنوات، ومنذ تسع سنوات والفائدة لا تنقطع.
En lo personal, considero que la inscripción en ProZ.com es una de las mejores inversiones de mi vida.
ProZ.com was my only way of being independent while waiting for working papers to come through (which they didn't in 3 years!)...After that, I just stick to it and I will remain to do so because it has since become my "workplace".

I've met several good translators here and get plenty of interesting work on a regular basis directly through my profile. That alone is worth the price of membership.

A few months ago I bid on a job because it called my name. The poster happily agreed to my rate and we've been working together ever since!

ProZ.com is my main “marketing tool”. I have no doubt that ProZ.com has contributed tremendously to my professional growth, and not just because of my profile, but also because of the site's excellent tools and resources. I am very happy with ProZ.com services. I guess what I am trying to say is: Wow, I’m impressed!
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.

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!

考え方としては国内の翻訳会社だけではなく、広く世界の翻訳会社も対象に入れて自分を売り込むことが肝心です。そのために、一番良いのはProZ.comのメンバーになることだと思います
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.

Już drugi rok jestem pełnoprawnym członkiem ProZ.com. Uzyskałam dostęp do wielu nowych funkcji, możliwość wystąpienia z prośbą o przyznanie Certyfikacji PRO, a przede wszystkim zwiększyła się moja widoczność jako tłumacza, co umożliwiło mi nawiązanie wielu nowych kontaktów. Grazie ProZ.com!
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.
