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, d' avoir plus de confiance en moi et mon travail, de faire des connaissances extrêmement intéressantes et surtout d'apprendre un tas de choses sur notre métier. Félicitations ProZ.com vous faites du bon travail!
Being for over 10 years a ProZ.com member, now I cannot imagine a day without visiting the site. It became a part of my daily activities. It was one of the most valuable investments I made during my presence in the translation industry.
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.
その間、いくらか仕事をこなしてきたので、チャンスを広げたいと思い、今度は年会費を振り込んで、"ProZ.com member" に。それからひと月ほどだろうか?なんと4社から立て続けに打診が来たのである。こんなにも効果がはっきりと出るとは、ちょっと意外であった。 だから、すでにいくらか実績があり、翻訳会社とのやり取りにも慣れて来たなら、ぜひこのサイトに登録してみることをお勧めしたい。

I have acquired 60% of the total number of my clients via ProZ.com. The site is extremely efficient and is visited by serious outsourcers. Therefore, I will stay with the site!
Kişisel olarak, ben çok yararlanıyorum bu siteden. Benden yıllık olarak değil 120 USD, 330 USD bile isteseler, gözümü kırpmadan bu parayı veririm açıkçası.
It has always been very useful for me. I would recommend anyone to join ProZ.com. I got there some of my most exciting jobs. I even became a supplier for interpreting services for a very big multinational through ProZ.com.
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.

Personally, being a ProZ.com member and using the website has made the difference for me as a translator and the fact that I am today a very successful translator is entirely due to my membership. In the last few years, I have tripled my production and my income. I work when I want and where I want.

One of the best investments a professional translator can make; a great shop window to promote your business, ready advice from the forums, bag/good payer listings on the Blue Board, and web hosting all in one.
I have been a paying member for about 9 months. During that time I have met more than new 10 clients, most of them paying really well and usually on time.
Članstvo na Prozu otvara vrata potpuno novog, fantastičnog sveta za prevodioce zbog toga što vas klijenti tretiraju ozbiljnije i što dobijate više poslovnih ponuda.
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 have found almost all of my clients through ProZ.com. The benefits of full membership in this site are worth every penny I paid.

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.
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
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.

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

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.
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
Thanks to ProZ.com in one year my life has changed, I have now become a full time translator, receiving many jobs from Italy and mainly abroad, I have now created my full time job which I can do from any part of the world or just by staying at home, all of this has been possible thanks to ProZ.com and the friendly and warm community support network! Not only I have increased my clients base but I have also got a longer list of new friends ..all of this couldn't have happened without ProZ.com!!
On a base of my experience to date I confirm that my investment in Proz.com was and still is profitable. The membership ensures valuable support for a business activity being lead by me, targeting mainly realization and provision of linguistic services to customers expecting the professional level of collaboration and linguistic services of high quality level.
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!
ProZ.com membership paid off in the first month in my case.
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.
Ora che sono membro pagante mi si sono aperte moltissime porte, ho potuto allargare la mia rete di clienti (grazie alla Blue Board) e si vedono già i primi risultati.
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.
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!

Takk for den flotte jobben dere gjør. Uten dere ville jeg ikke ha jobbet som oversetter!
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've been paying ProZ.com membership for 3 years and it helped me a lot in finding new clients. Now I'm overwhelmed with jobs.

After several years of free membership I decided to change its status to a paid member ... and I regret that I waited so long!
A ProZ.com tagsággal járó előnyök azonban megnyitották előttem a világot, és pár év alatt kiterjedt nemzetközi ügyfélkörre tettem szert. Az évek során rengeteg érdekes emberrel ismerkedtem meg személyesen is a Proz.com rendezvényein, akik mindig nagyon segítőkészek, lelkesek, és a világra nyitottak voltak.

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.

When I renew, I will probably do so for another ten-year period. Let me take this opportunity to recommend ten-year membership to everybody who reads these messages. You do not have to worry about renewing each and every year. It is the best investment you can make. Highly recommended!
