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.

I have had a lot more profitable work since I joined ProZ.com last year,
and can pick and choose my jobs now, which is a great luxury.
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.
Shukrani kwa ProZ.com kwa kunipa fursa kubwa ambayo sijawahi kupata kabla, nimejifunza mengi kutoka kwenye kozi za mafunzo ya kulipia na vikao vya mikutano ya bure, wafanyakazi wa ProZ.com daima wamekuwa wasaidizi wazuri mno kwangu, mfumo wao wa uendeshaji ni rahisi kutumia na umeniongezea SEO yangu, idadi ya wateja wangu na wageni inaongezeka kwa kasi.
Investment is not just spending money. Investing implies practical activities to achieve the results. Therefore, membership itself does not guarantee your success. However, being able to use the full functionality offers great opportunities.

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 have been a paying member for about 9 months. During that time I have met more than new 10 clients, most of them paying really well and usually on time.
Članstvo na Prozu otvara vrata potpuno novog, fantastičnog sveta za prevodioce zbog toga što vas klijenti tretiraju ozbiljnije i što dobijate više poslovnih ponuda.

I joined ProZ.com as a paying member in 2009, and haven't looked back since. If you invest time with your profile, site facilities, training
and events, then after a while good customers will come after you. I've been "found" through ProZ.com from a simple Google search on many occasions.
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.

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.

I get occasional approaches through my ProZ.com profile, which in itself makes it worthwhile, because one smallish job covers your membership fee. I also use the invoicing feature and free website hosting, so it saves me money in those areas. As others have said the Blue Board is useful and could help you avoid some major headaches. ProZ.com also has a very high rating in Google, so your profile or KudoZ questions you have asked or answered (which will link through to your profile) are likely to come up in web searches, thereby increasing your visibility.

I've been registered at ProZ.com since the beginning of my freelance activity and almost all my clients are companies who contacted me through ProZ.com. A couple of them became faithful clients with whom I still work today on a daily basis. We have built a strong partnership. So yes, I am very satisfied with the time, money and efforts invested in my ProZ.com citizenship.
Cela fait déjà deux ans depuis que je fais partie de la commune ProZ.com. Le site m'a offert la possibilité de travailler avec des agences au niveau international, d' avoir plus de confiance en moi et mon travail, de faire des connaissances extrêmement intéressantes et surtout d'apprendre un tas de choses sur notre métier. Félicitations ProZ.com vous faites du bon travail!

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
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.

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.

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

This is simply the best, most comprehensive support network and best moderated web site I could wish for as a translator.

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

Add enjoyment to your work
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.

Devo dire che i risultati - a meno di sei mesi dal passaggio a membro pagante - si vedono già, ho ampliato molto la mia rete di clienti (ho avuto il mio primo contatto positivo dopo un paio di mesi) e la quota di iscrizione annuale è stata ampiamente ammortizzata.
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!

After several years of free membership I decided to change its status to a paid member ... and I regret that I waited so long!
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!
Takk for den flotte jobben dere gjør. Uten dere ville jeg ikke ha jobbet som oversetter!
When I renew, I will probably do so for another ten-year period. Let me take this opportunity to recommend ten-year membership to everybody who reads these messages. You do not have to worry about renewing each and every year. It is the best investment you can make. Highly recommended!
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 is like a wonderful tool kit for a workshop of linguists. I recommend with pleasure to become a member of the website society and have benefits available in many respects to each person interested in any language translation. I recommend the website and membership mainly to linguists – translators & interpreters and to buyers of linguistic services.
Thanks to ProZ.com in one year my life has changed, I have now become a full time translator, receiving many jobs from Italy and mainly abroad, I have now created my full time job which I can do from any part of the world or just by staying at home, all of this has been possible thanks to ProZ.com and the friendly and warm community support network! Not only I have increased my clients base but I have also got a longer list of new friends ..all of this couldn't have happened without ProZ.com!!
I think the site is very helpful to translators and I would like to spread the word around, so that every translator could benefit from the high quality of the site and also have the opportunity to share many doubts with other translators.

Mil gracias ProZ.com por darme la posibilidad de vivir de mi profesión, relacionarme con colegas y clientes, hacer consultas, brindar respuestas y capacitarme, todo siempre dentro de un marco de colaboración y respeto.

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
I am very happy with my membership and sure many more colleagues will be of theirs in the future!
