Member testimonials


Find premium clients
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.

Becoming a member of ProZ.com was one of the wisest moves I made upon starting to work freelance. I got numerous good clients through the site and never have a shortage of work as a result!

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.

Salah satu manfaat besar dengan menjadi anggota berbayar ProZ.com ialah dapat sepenuhnya mencari informasi pada Blue Board dan forum. Kebanyakan agensi (kira-kira 40% dari pelanggan saya) mengetahui profil saya dari ProZ.com.

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.

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.

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

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 think that the full ProZ.com membership is the best option: not only can you get new jobs and clients, but you can also use the help of your fellow translators through the KudoZ feature.

Get and give professional advice
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.

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.

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!

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

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.

Add enjoyment to your work
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.

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!

La membresía profesional, entre otras cosas, te da acceso inmediato a notificaciones de trabajo y acceso al Blue Board, un registro muy útil en el que los compañeros dejamos indicaciones sobre la fiabilidad de las agencias. Te salvará de disgustos con malos clientes.
Grande opportunità per tutti i traduttori. La membership dà vantaggi non indifferenti. E' molto importante sul piano professionale ed il rapporto prezzo qualità è eccezionale!

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.

I couldn't imagine my quickstart as a professional freelancer without ProZ.com. I registered as a user a few months ago to "test drive" the website features. Even without a full membership almost 80% of my current jobs come from ProZ Job Postings. Now that I'm well prepared for freelancing rather than hired as an employee, I expect to establish much more relationships with both agencies and partners.

Thanks ProZ for the valuable tool !!!
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.

For the past months as I begun my membership in ProZ it has been nothing but excitement, fun, learning and giving, as well as meeting colleagues, working with them, receiving the help many times needed and a great place to step into. Life becomes easier with people like you backing us!

I so much enjoy the Proz site and can hardly imagine life without it these days!
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.

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.

When I first started providing freelance translations I found ProZ.com a great source of information and helpful in many ways. Now it is part of my daily routine. To me ProZ.com not only means job offers, but it is a community and knowledge base and makes me enjoy work even more. Thanks to everybody working for ProZ.com to provide this page and for ever being helpful!

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.
