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).
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.
ProZ.com is een hoogst betrouwbare referte.
I have met all of my present clients on ProZ.com. The Blue Board and the term database are very useful. To me, they are worth the membership cost alone.
Joining ProZ.com was an investment which paid off very quickly. I secured some excellent clients through the site, and ProZ.com has been instrumental in my growth in the profession - I continue to learn from all the great information and events on offer. Potential clients now approach me and that, without a doubt, is thanks to ProZ.com.
I was very skeptical when I joined ProZ.com, but I have to say that being a member really pays! I found new clients in just five months of membership.
I have acquired 60% of the total number of my clients via ProZ.com. The site is extremely efficient and is visited by serious outsourcers. Therefore, I will stay with the site!
Članstvo na Prozu otvara vrata potpuno novog, fantastičnog sveta za prevodioce ne samo zbog toga što vas klijenti tretiraju ozbiljnije i što dobijate više poslovnih ponuda, već i zbog toga što koristeći sve funkcije sajta značajno povećavate svoje znanje o prevodilačkom poslu uopšte i time postajete sigurniji u sebe i produktivniji.
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.
Paid membership at ProZ.com has been a good investment in the last 1-2 years. Several agencies have contacted me with offers, some of which I have taken up.
Most of my best clients have contacted me through my profile on ProZ.com.
The clients who have found me on ProZ.com form about three quarters of my clientele. It has been a tremendous help to me.
I have been a ProZ.com member for some time, and irrespective of anything, such investments are a definite indicator that you are indeed a serious player in this field. This investment is recovered much sooner than expected. Go for it!
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 find ProZ.com membership really valuable because I got many good new clients around the world.
Get and give professional advice
ProZ.com is a new higher level society and new way of thinking for translators!
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.
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 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!
In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
U vielmi mnohich vypadkach samaja pieršaja zamova, atrymanaja praz ProZ.com, bolš čym całkam pakryvaje hadavy ŭniosak.
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.
This is simply the best, most comprehensive support network and best moderated web site I could wish for as a translator.
Add enjoyment to your work
ProZ.com is a great community and I am happy to be part of it!
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!
I am lucky that I am high in the directory for my language pair. I get more direct requests than I can keep up with and the rest of my jobs are referrals.
Grand Merci! J'apprécie énormément l'aide que ProZ.com apporte aux traducteurs à travers le monde entier. Toutes mes félicitations et je vous exhorte à continuer votre excellent travail! Merci Infiniment!
ProZ.com is a more than liable reference.
Just another sign of quality: I systematically cross-check translation offers from other sites with the Blue Board database...
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.
My career as a translator is going very well since I became paying member of ProZ.com. My profile page on ProZ.com has been extremely effective and I put a lot of work in it to make it stand out from the crowd. This pays, I get more and more job requests through ProZ.com and I don't have to reply to jobs anymore because I am always busy. Without ProZ.com I would not have dared taking the step to bring my translation career to a professional level.
Avant tout, ProZ.com représente pour moi une plate-forme d’échanges internationale permettant de côtoyer d’autres traducteurs via les forums et les formations. J’apprécie également la possibilité de pouvoir obtenir des informations sur les agences de traduction et les donneurs d’ordre en général grâce au Blue Board (certes non exhaustif, mais ô combien utile !), et de l’aide en cas de besoin avec les KudoZ. De plus, grâce à ProZ.com, j’ai trouvé un client avec lequel je travaille régulièrement : espérons que cela ne soit que le début d’une longue série!
Po kilku latach bezpłatnego członkostwa zdecydowałam się zmienić swój status na członka płatnego i… żałuję, że tak długo zwlekałam!
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!
اشتركت في بروز.كوم منذ تسع سنوات، ومنذ تسع سنوات والفائدة لا تنقطع.
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.
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.
Become a ProZ.com member (the membership fee will definitely pay off), answer KudoZ questions, get some WWA and don't forget to fill out your profile completely.
ProZ.com serves as the channel to go international. Before joining this site, my clients were mainly local post-graduate students. After joining this site, I can reach both national and international clients.
