Member testimonials


Find premium clients
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).
A me ProZ.com, scoperto nel 2003 navigando, ha portato una vera e propria nuova carriera globale. Scoprendo ProZ.com mi si è aperta una carriera a livello globale con clienti da tutte le parti del mondo e nel giro di pochi mesi. Io lo consiglio.
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.
Som platiaci člen od roku 2005. Členstvo mi prináša mnoho zákazníkov. Zdá sa, že to bola veľmi dobrá investícia.

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.

I was very skeptical when I joined ProZ.com, but I have to say that being a member really pays! I found new clients in just five months of membership.
Soy miembro de Proz.com desde 2003 y desde un principio disfruté mi membresía. El sitio no sólo es útil para conseguir trabajo. Cuando tengo alguna dificultad relacionada con el sitio, por ejemplo, la mejora de mi perfil, siempre obtengo una respuesta muy amable y eficiente.
Thank you for your effort! I find it very useful.
The site is very, very helpful. And meeting even one client can pay for the membership costs!

While I have been part of the community for more than five years, I just became a member last month. I cannot believe how many contacts I have made since becoming a (paying) member... I have three new clients and these are some of the best clients I have ever had.
At first, I was a non-paying member for a couple of years and I was never contacted by potential clients directly. Becoming a paying member at ProZ.com allowed me to grow as a professional, as a person and as a business.

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

Being a paid member for 2 years now not only tripled my clients, but also gave them trust and confidence to use my language services repeatedly. I am totally satisfied with membership benefits, including the support ProZ.com has given me throughout the years and counting.

To me, it really is a no-brainer. The fee represents a few hours of labor and the advantages I derive from it far exceed the small outlay of cash. Any single one of the benefits I've cited above would be worth the annual fee.

Get and give professional advice
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.

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.

This is simply the best, most comprehensive support network and best moderated web site I could wish for as a translator.

U vielmi mnohich vypadkach samaja pieršaja zamova, atrymanaja praz ProZ.com, bolš čym całkam pakryvaje hadavy ŭniosak.
In quite many cases, the very first order won via ProZ.com more than covers the annual membership dues.
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
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.
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.
ProZ.com is a new higher level society and new way of thinking for translators!
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!

Add enjoyment to your work
ProZ.com is een hoogst betrouwbare referte
één bijzondere kwaliteitsmerk : met behulp van ProZ's Blue Board verifieer ik altijd de vertaling jobs, die op andere sites geplaatst worden...
Using ProZ.com for the past 5 years has been and is invaluable to me. It provides a forum for customers to locate a translator to fit their translation needs. When running into problems or queries, the various forums on Proz are an excellent source of advice and collegial support

ProZ.com — лучший, на мой взгляд, сайт для профессиональных переводчиков. Это не только удобная площадка для общения с коллегами, но и полезный информационный ресурс. А самое главное — это реальная возможность приобрести новых клиентов.

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.
Thanks to ProZ.com I got in touch with all my major clients years ago.
Devo dire che i risultati - a meno di sei mesi dal passaggio a membro pagante - si vedono già, ho ampliato molto la mia rete di clienti (ho avuto il mio primo contatto positivo dopo un paio di mesi) e la quota di iscrizione annuale è stata ampiamente ammortizzata.
I so much enjoy the Proz site and can hardly imagine life without it these days!
I would not be a translator without you guys!
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 am convinced that without ProZ.com, I would never have made the contacts I need to work as a full time professional translator. Not only have I received job offers, but I have also established valuable relationships with other translators which have evolved into a mutual support network of trusted colleagues.

After several years of free membership I decided to change its status to a paid member ... and I regret that I waited so long!
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!
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
Na bazie dotychczasowego doświadczenia potwierdzam, że moja inwestycja w Proz.com opłaciła się i nadal się opłaca. Członkowstwo zapewnia wartościowe wsparcie dla prowadzonej przeze mnie działalności gospodarczej, nakierowanej głównie na realizację i dostarczanie przekładu językowego klientom oczekującym profesjonalnego poziomu współpracy i usług lingwistycznych o wysokiej jakości.
