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.
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.

同時 ProZ.com 翻譯社區一個充滿活力網路溝通平台,讓我們有機會來自世界各地的翻譯專業人士還有業界的技術人員,互相交換業界的新資訊以及疑難解答。
I am extremely satisfied with Proz.com's services and it is thanks to this exceptional portal that I increased my turnover this year by 20%.
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.

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.
The vast majority of my clients have found me through ProZ.com, while my membership is compensated by a half day's work — good ROI, I believe. Invest in your success!

It's definitely worth it. I've been a registered user at ProZ.com since 2002, but only started getting jobs through the site after becoming a member. The membership fee paid back after the first order.
Ingressar no ProZ.com foi um investimento que deu um retorno muito rápido. Consegui clientes excelentes através do site, e o ProZ.com tem sido instrumental em meu crescimento na profissão - continuo a aprender das informações e os eventos disponibilizados. Agora, são os clientes potenciais que me procuram e ísso é, sem dúvida, graças ao ProZ.com.
I have paid for full membership at the beginning of this year, and answering KudoZ questions, following and participating in the forums, and attending a recent powwow has been very profitable, both in terms of new jobs (usually offered to me through visualization of my profile, more rarely from bids) and contacts. I am happy with the results so far.
Sin duda ProZ.com nos acerca a los profesionales de todo el mundo, alienta nuestro desarrollo y capacitación desde una perspectiva abierta, y plural acorde a la demanda y a los desafíos que nos presenta el mercado actual.
¡Una vez más elijo y estoy satisfecha con los servicios y propuestas del sitio!
ProZ.com è il sito migliore al mondo, dove il nostro lavoro e la loro organizzazione trovano completa armonia.
ఈ సభ్యత్వము నాకు నిజంగా చాలా అమూల్యంగా అనిపించింది ఎందుకంటే ప్రపంచవ్యాప్తంగా నేను చాలా మంది మంచి క్లయింట్లను సంపాదించుకున్నాను
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!

On a base of my experience to date I confirm that my investment in Proz.com was and still is profitable.

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.

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

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.

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 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
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.

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


Add enjoyment to your work
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".

Sì- è un buon investimento per le ragioni già ampiamente esposte, e non dimenticare che il costo è scaricabile dal reddito imponibile !

I would not be a translator without you guys!
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।
Na bazie dotychczasowego doświadczenia potwierdzam, że moja inwestycja w Proz.com opłaciła się i nadal się opłaca. Członkowstwo zapewnia wartościowe wsparcie dla prowadzonej przeze mnie działalności gospodarczej, nakierowanej głównie na realizację i dostarczanie przekładu językowego klientom oczekującym profesjonalnego poziomu współpracy i usług lingwistycznych o wysokiej jakości.
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!

谢谢 ProZ.com 团队为大家提供的这个很好的平台,以及他们对这个平台的不断改进!
Je ne peux pas dire dans quelle proportion mon CA a augmenté suite à mon adhésion car j'ai pratiquement démarré mon activité freelance il y quelques années grâce à Proz. Ou alors il faut dire de 0 à 100% ! car mes premiers clients, je les ai trouvés sur Proz. Ma cotisation était payée (largement) dès mon premier contrat.

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.
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!
Io sono membro pagante e secondo me vale la pena, se pensi che con un lavoro o due (dipende dalle dimensioni, naturalmente!) hai già coperto la spesa. Ti dà anche più visibilità, accesso al Blue Board, e anche la possibilità di fare l'hosting un'eventuale sito web personale (incluso nel prezzo).
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 is een hoogst betrouwbare referte
één bijzondere kwaliteitsmerk : met behulp van ProZ's Blue Board verifieer ik altijd de vertaling jobs, die op andere sites geplaatst worden...
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.
ProZ.com membership paid off in the first month in my case.
