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.

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).

Being a paying member of ProZ.com opens the door to a whole new fantastic world for translators, not only because clients treat you more seriously and you get more job offers, but also because by having the opportunity to use all site features, you increase your translation business knowledge immensely and thus become more confident and productive.
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.

Since I joined ProZ.com the number of my customers has increased and now I have more job opportunities. I owe so much to ProZ.com and I am very satisfied with being a member of the ProZ.com community.
I have obtained and *kept* 11 clients.

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.

Depuis 2010, ProZ.com m'a beaucoup apporté: de nombreux contacts professionnels, des collègues qui sont devenus des amis, des formations très intéressantes, la certification PRO et des outils dont je me sers chaque jour (calendrier, factures, recherche terminologique). Aujourd'hui, j'envisage d'aider à mon tour en partageant mon expérience avec les nouveaux venus via le programme de tutorat ou en donnant des formations. Une chose est sûre, je ne regrette pas mon affiliation.

I found ProZ.com quite useful initially (the term search, KudoZ, the glossaries, etc.), but it really came into its own when I became a paying member. Now, nearly all of my jobs come through my ProZ.com profile, and through repeat requests from regular clients, and I can't remember the last time I actually bid for a job.

The Blue Board is extremely useful for filtering out undesirable clients (bad/slow payers) - a feature that is only available to full members, but it is worth its weight in gold.

ProZ.com is a truly amazing source of new business for professional translators. The most worthwhile investment I've ever made in my business by a long shot.

ProZ.com is terrific. I would not have a translation career without these past 7 years as a member. Between the technology and the global marketplace provided by ProZ.com, there's never been a better time to be a translator. No ProZ.com, no translation career. Thanks ProZ.com!

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.
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%.

A ProZ.com tagsággal járó előnyök azonban megnyitották előttem a világot, és pár év alatt kiterjedt nemzetközi ügyfélkörre tettem szert.

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!

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.

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

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.
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.

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!

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
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.

Thanks to ProZ.com I got in touch with all my major clients years ago.
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.

ProZ.com has opened for me a completely new market, complementary to my existing one. I've learnt to apply new tools for marketing, business (software and systems) and translation.

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).
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!

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".

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.
