ProZ.com is een hoogst betrouwbare referte.
I received a job offer in my first week of joining!
I joined ProZ.com as a paying member in 2009, and haven't looked back since. I've been "found" through ProZ.com from a simple Google search on many occasions.
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.
ProZ.com has been the greatest marketing tool I've used. My investment paid off really quickly and now I have more and better clients.
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. Becoming a full member was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
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.
We have been members for one year now, and we are very satisfied because, while we get one or two jobs per year through the ProZ.com job system, most of the jobs we get come from customers who found us on the ProZ.com directory.
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.
ProZ.com was the best partner to start out my autonomous activity after a life (almost) as an employee.
Bu siteye ödediğim her kuruş helal-i hoş olsun ProZ.com'un artık bir sektör standartı olduğunu düşünüyorum. Ayrıca ProZ.com sertifikasyonu ciddiye alınan bir referans. Müşterilerin hemen hepsini proz.com aracılığı ile buldum. Ekip çok sağlam ve herhangi bir konuda anında cevap veriyorlar ve ellerinden geldiği kadar yardımcı olmaya çalışıyorlar.
ProZ.com est la plateforme par excellence où le traducteur professionnel peut trouver plus de travail et la réponse à de différentes questions par rapport à ses traductions. En plus, ProZ.com offre plusieurs cours de capacitation et une large gamme de logiciels de traduction à des prix réduits. Les services offerts par ProZ.com sont d’une qualité impeccable et 100% fiables. La cotisation annuelle vaut la peine!
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.
To date I have signed 10 contracts with 10 agencies, the result of ProZ.com's solid support and my strategic perseverance.
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 et mon travail et surtout d'apprendre un tas de choses sur notre métier.

U vielmi mnohich vypadkach samaja pieršaja zamova, atrymanaja praz ProZ.com, bolš čym całkam pakryvaje hadavy ŭniosak.
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
In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
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 not only our workplace, it's also a worldwide, developing community of people in translation business.
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.
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 a new higher level society and new way of thinking for translators!
Add enjoyment to your work
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.
Boa oportunidade para todos os tradutores. Vou de certeza recomendar a adesão. Acho que é uma grande oportunidade profissional. Não percam esta possibilidade incrível!
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!
Stubborn, individual, liberal Swedish moderator
I am lucky that I am high in the directory for my language pair. I get more direct requests than I can keep up with and the rest of my jobs are referrals.
No es un costo, es una inversión en tu profesión, tu trabajo, tu futuro. Seguro que otros colegas te darán una opinión similar.
I would not be a translator without you guys!
ProZ.com is indispensable for two reasons:
1. The BlueBoard - where avoiding one bad payer will cover your subscription
2. The Translators' Directory - where clients go looking for translators.
It’s been truly invaluable!
Takk for den flotte jobben dere gjør. Uten dere ville jeg ikke ha jobbet som oversetter!
After several years of free membership I decided to change its status to a paid member ... and I regret that I waited so long!
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.
Glad to be fully on board ProZ.com at last!
Thanks ProZ.com! I've managed to get two or three jobs via ProZ.com so I thought it was time you made an honest member of me! Regards, Nick
Da membro pagante invece è possibile rispondere a tutti gli annunci e poi soprattutto leggere i commenti dei colleghi nella Blue Board.
Ho deciso di diventare membro per poter usufruire di tutto ciò che offre questo portale, nella speranza di fare molte esperienze!
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).
