I would certainly recommend becoming a ProZ.com member. I have been able to get many jobs through ProZ.com. It's "before and after" for a translator who wishes to remain a freelancer. I cannot wait to renew my membership whenever it's due. Think about this: normally "one" project pays the annual fee.

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.

Bu siteye ödediğim her kuruş helal-i hoş olsun ProZ.com'un artık bir sektör standartı olduğunu düşünüyorum. Ayrıca ProZ.com sertifikasyonu ciddiye alınan bir referans. Müşterilerin hemen hepsini proz.com aracılığı ile buldum. Ekip çok sağlam ve herhangi bir konuda anında cevap veriyorlar ve ellerinden geldiği kadar yardımcı olmaya çalışıyorlar.

ProZ.com is echt de beste website/verzamelplaats voor vertalers en iedereen die werkt met taal.
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.
One of the best investments a professional translator can make; a great shop window to promote your business, ready advice from the forums, bag/good payer listings on the Blue Board, and web hosting all in one.
Being for over 10 years a ProZ.com member, now I cannot imagine a day without visiting the site. It became a part of my daily activities. It was one of the most valuable investments I made during my presence in the translation industry.
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.
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.
A sound return on investment, I would say. :)
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 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.
The investment in membership has consistently paid itself off, both through new clients and perhaps even more importantly access to the Blue Board.
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!

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.

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!

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 not only our workplace, it's also a worldwide, developing community of people in translation business.

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.

In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
This is simply the best, most comprehensive support network and best moderated web site I could wish for as a translator.

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!
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.


Add enjoyment to your work
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.
Boa oportunidade para todos os tradutores. Vou de certeza recomendar a adesão. Acho que é uma grande oportunidade profissional. Não percam esta possibilidade incrível!
The site definitely helped me to extend my business as a freelancer. This surely helped me to "make much more money" than I earned before registration at the site. And I guess I am not the only one who met clients and established new business relations via ProZ.com.
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!

Po kilku latach bezpłatnego członkostwa zdecydowałam się zmienić swój status na członka płatnego i… żałuję, że tak długo zwlekałam!
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
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!
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!
ProZ.com to pierwsze, co przychodzi mi na myśl, kiedy ktoś mnie pyta, na czym polega praca tłumacza.

As an old song used to say, more or less, "Jeepers, creepers... where�d ya get them... 'ideas'"? These new features are simply fantastic and they work beautifully. My platinum membership is worth every dollar.

I have been a paying member for a year by now and my second year just started. I see a great change in the number of my clients whom I contacted via Proz.com.

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.
अनुवाद से आनेवाली मेरी आमदनी का अधिकांश प्रोज.कॉम के जरिए आता है। प्रोज.कॉम का सदस्य बनने के बाद मेरी आर्थिक स्थति इतनी मजबूत हुई कि मैं अपनी अच्छी-खासी पूर्णकालिक नौकरी छोड़कर पूरा समय फ्रीलांस हिंदी अनुवाद को देने की हिम्मत कर सका।
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!
Sì- è un buon investimento per le ragioni già ampiamente esposte, e non dimenticare che il costo è scaricabile dal reddito imponibile !
