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!

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 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.

At first, I was a non-paying member for a couple of years and I was never contacted by potential clients directly. Becoming a paying member at ProZ.com allowed me to grow as a professional, as a person and as a business.

A me ProZ.com, scoperto nel 2003 navigando, ha portato una vera e propria nuova carriera globale. Scoprendo ProZ.com mi si è aperta una carriera a livello globale con clienti da tutte le parti del mondo e nel giro di pochi mesi. Io lo consiglio.

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.

Once I discovered ProZ.com, I immediately became a member and started to reply to job offers. Now, thanks to ProZ.com I have many good clients all over the world.Thanks to ProZ.com my dream of becoming a full-time freelance translator has come true, together with a good income. What can I add? Thanks a lot for running the site.

Wielu z moich najlepszych klientów znalazło mnie właśnie poprzez ProZ.com
Initially, I doubted if my membership investment would represent a benefit. Well, I broke even after 2-3 months of becoming a member!

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.

I'm still in shock that we got the (popular children's character) contract -- it involves work that will go more than a year. And where did the editor-in-chief at their corporate offices in NYC, find me? At my profile on ProZ.com. I tell you, I've never gotten so much out of so little investment.

ProZ.com is echt de beste website/verzamelplaats voor vertalers en iedereen die werkt met taal.

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
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!

U vielmi mnohich vypadkach samaja pieršaja zamova, atrymanaja praz ProZ.com, bolš čym całkam pakryvaje hadavy ŭniosak.
In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
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.

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

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.

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

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

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


Add enjoyment to your work
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.

A ProZ.com tagsággal járó előnyök azonban megnyitották előttem a világot, és pár év alatt kiterjedt nemzetközi ügyfélkörre tettem szert. Az évek során rengeteg érdekes emberrel ismerkedtem meg személyesen is a Proz.com rendezvényein, akik mindig nagyon segítőkészek, lelkesek, és a világra nyitottak voltak.

Jak dotąd zostanie członkiem Proz.com było moją najlepszą inwestycją w karierę. To kontakty nawiązane przez Proz pozwoliły mi zająć się wyłącznie tłumaczeniem i doskonalić w zawodzie. Gorąco polecam

ProZ.com stanowi z pewnością wspaniały niezbędnik warsztatu pracy lingwistów. Z przyjemnością pod wszelkimi względami polecam korzystanie z dobrodziejstwa tej witryny internetowej każdej osobie zainteresowanej przekładem językowym. Polecam witrynę ProZ.com i członkowstwo zwłaszcza tłumaczom i nabywcom usług lingwistycznych.

I so much enjoy the Proz site and can hardly imagine life without it these days!
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.

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!

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.

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 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".

On a base of my experience to date I confirm that my investment in Proz.com was and still is profitable. The membership ensures valuable support for a business activity being lead by me, targeting mainly realization and provision of linguistic services to customers expecting the professional level of collaboration and linguistic services of high quality level.
