Kişisel olarak, ben çok yararlanıyorum bu siteden. Benden yıllık olarak değil 120 USD, 330 USD bile isteseler, gözümü kırpmadan bu parayı veririm açıkçası.
I am a paid member since 2005. My membership brings me a lot of customers. It seems that it was a very good investment.

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.

I have found almost all of my clients through ProZ.com. Benefits of full membership in this site is worth of every penny I paid. For me and many other professionals in this industry, ProZ.com is now a sector standard and reference point.

Paid membership at ProZ.com has been a good investment in the last 1-2 years. Several agencies have contacted me with offers, some of which I have taken up.

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.
Being a paying member of ProZ.com opens the door to a whole new fantastic world for translators, not only because clients treat you more seriously and you get more job offers, but also because by having the opportunity to use all site features, you increase your translation business knowledge immensely and thus become more confident and productive.
When I started freelancing almost ten years ago, I used a variety of methods to reach out to potential clients. I placed an ad in the local yellow pages (no lead whatsoever), I sent out hundreds of emails to translation agencies (this landed me a couple of jobs), but by far the most efficient way of promotion was using the features that are available on ProZ.com.

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).
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.

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!
ProZ.com is echt de beste website/verzamelplaats voor vertalers en iedereen die werkt met taal.

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.

Initially, I doubted if my membership investment would represent a benefit. Well, I broke even after 2-3 months of becoming a member!

U vielmi mnohich vypadkach samaja pieršaja zamova, atrymanaja praz ProZ.com, bolš čym całkam pakryvaje hadavy ŭniosak.
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!

ProZ.com is not only our workplace, it's also a worldwide, developing community of people in translation business.

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.

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

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
ProZ.com is a more than liable reference.
Just another sign of quality: I systematically cross-check translation offers from other sites with the Blue Board database...
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.

Je suis satisfait d'être membre payant. J'ai même rempilé pour 5 ans.
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.
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!
90% of my clients in the last 10 years contacted me thanks to ProZ.com membership.
I so much enjoy the Proz site and can hardly imagine life without it these days!
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!

My career as a translator is going very well since I became paying member of ProZ.com. My profile page on ProZ.com has been extremely effective and I put a lot of work in it to make it stand out from the crowd. This pays, I get more and more job requests through ProZ.com and I don't have to reply to jobs anymore because I am always busy. Without ProZ.com I would not have dared taking the step to bring my translation career to a professional level.
No es un costo, es una inversión en tu profesión, tu trabajo, tu futuro. Seguro que otros colegas te darán una opinión similar.
I only have positive things to say about ProZ.com, which has been a tremendous source of professional support for me this year.
I am constantly recommending it to friends and colleagues.
谢谢 ProZ.com 团队为大家提供的这个很好的平台,以及他们对这个平台的不断改进!
A ponadto wielu z moich najlepszych klientów znalazło mnie właśnie poprzez ProZ.com.Kwota uzyskana z ich zleceń wystarczyłaby na opłacenie składki członkowskiej ProZa na następne... 1000 lat! Niezły zwrot z inwestycji, prawda?
I personally see site participation and membership as highly beneficial in a number of ways, including the following:

1. ... "Internet visibility" ...

2. Unrestricted access to the Blue Board.

3. KudoZ as a resource for terms help when needed.
