Find premium clients
One of the main benefits of being a paying member of ProZ.com is having full access to Blue Board information and site forums. What's more, most of my clients have found me via my ProZ.com profile.
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.

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.

Soy miembro de Proz.com desde 2003 y desde un principio disfruté mi membresía. El sitio no sólo es útil para conseguir trabajo. Cuando tengo alguna dificultad relacionada con el sitio, por ejemplo, la mejora de mi perfil, siempre obtengo una respuesta muy amable y eficiente.
ProZ.com is echt de beste website/verzamelplaats voor vertalers en iedereen die werkt met taal.
Большинство моих сегодняшних клиентов сами нашли меня через ProZ.com, а членство окупается за полдня работы — неплохая рентабельность, на мой взгляд. Инвестируйте в свой успех!

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.
Thanks to ProZ.com for giving me great opportunities that I have never had before. Membership has boosted my SEO, the number of my clients and visitors is increasing dramatically.
ProZ.com is the platform per excellence to get more work and where you can find the answer to all your translation related questions. What’s more, ProZ.com offers the professional translator various courses and almost all translation software at serious discounts. Every activity that ProZ.com undertakes is perfectly organized and a 100% reliable. Paying for an annual membership is really worth the money.
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.

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.

ProZ.com gives you Internet visibility. The fee represents a few hours of labor and the advantages I derive from it far exceed the small outlay of cash.

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.

I became a ProZ.com paying member this year and it has proven to be the smartest business decision I have made in the past 10 years.

ProZ.com то не только удобная площадка для общения с коллегами, но и полезный информационный ресурс. А самое главное — это реальная возможность приобрести новых клиентов.

Get and give professional advice
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 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!

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

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.

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.
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.
U vielmi mnohich vypadkach samaja pieršaja zamova, atrymanaja praz ProZ.com, bolš čym całkam pakryvaje hadavy ŭniosak.
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.

Add enjoyment to your work
En lo personal, considero que la inscripción en ProZ.com es una de las mejores inversiones de mi vida.
I am very happy with my membership and sure many more colleagues will be of theirs in the future!
Mi sono iscritto a Proz.com semplicemente perchè è la miglior community di traduttori sul web!
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!

I thank ProZ.com team members & moderators for their active support.
Congratulations and thank you very much for your hard work.
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!
ProZ.com è il sito migliore al mondo, dove il nostro lavoro e la loro organizzazione trovano completa armonia. Grazie per quanto avete fatto e quanto farete ancora in futuro
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.
Boa oportunidade para todos os tradutores. Vou de certeza recomendar a adesão. Acho que é uma grande oportunidade profissional. Não percam esta possibilidade incrível!
Стать членом сайта, безусловно, стоит. Я зарегистрирована на ProZ.com с 2002 г., но работу через этот сайт стала получать только после того, как приобрела членство. Годовой членский взнос окупился после первого заказа.
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!
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!

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.
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 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.
