Requirements for translation companies
01 Business reliabilityThe first requirement for admittance into the program is business reliability. This is assessed through a combination of language service provider and client feedback, and consideration of relevant data from the ProZ.com database. Once admitted to the program, participants must maintain good track records in order to remain in the program.
02 Good citizenshipThe second requirement for admittance into the program is "good citizenship". Participants must endorse and act in a manner consistent with the ProZ.com professional guidelines, they must accept the terms and conditions of program participation, and they must contribute to the upkeep of the program by remaining in good standing as members, in terms of membership fees, profile data, and adherence with site and program rules and regulations.

I'm really looking forward to contributing to this important program, and to working with so many top professionals!
So far I'm impressed with quality and detailed level of thought and feedback people are putting in, plus the fact that people are motivated by what's good for the industry rather than their own self-interest.
I look forward to seeing it develop into a real and beneficial resource for professional translators, and I hope I can contribute to it as well.
