Most of my new clients now come from ProZ.com, and I have to say that fine-tuning my profile has generated some pretty good "matches" (clients that are willing to pay my rates for specific subject areas). I think ProZ.com is a great source of new clients and it is also hugely helpful in avoiding bad payers.
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!
I was able to become a full-time freelance translator with clients met through ProZ.com. It was the start to my new life and I haven't looked back since!
Thanks to ProZ.com for giving me great opportunities that I have never had before. I have learned a lot from both paying training courses and free virtual conferences, ProZ.com staff have been always wonderful supporters to me, the platform is easy to use and membership has boosted my SEO, the number of my clients and visitors is increasing dramatically.
A sound return on investment, I would say. :)
Sa pagiging isang bayad na miyembro sa loob ng 2 taon na ngayon, hindi lang naging triple ang aking mga kliyente ngunit nakakuha rin ng tiwala at kompiyansa mula sa kanila upang gamitin nang paulit-ulit ang aking mga serbisyo sa wika. Lubos akong nasisiyahan sa mga benepisyo kasama ang suporta na ibinigay ng ProZ.com sa akin sa buong mga taon at bumibilang pa. Maraming salamat!

Becoming a ProZ.com member last year was certainly a very good investment. I have gained new clients, full access to the Blue Board and can now choose from a wide range of ProZ.com training events, often at a lower cost.

After two years at Proz.com, I am addicted - to the humorous, eloquent and co-operative colleagues I have encountered, to KudoZ and to the sheer profusion of job opportunities which have led me to several wonderful outsourcers and outsourceresses. Proz.com contributes generously to the quality of my professional life, I'm in for the duration!
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.
Of all the annual investments Monica and I make, ProZ.com membership is arguably the most valuable. Every year, our membership generates new business contacts which result in tangible job opportunities... ProZ.com membership is a definite thumbs up!

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.

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.
I think the invoicing tool is about as perfect as it can be. Great job!
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.

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.


Get and give professional advice
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.

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.

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.

U vielmi mnohich vypadkach samaja pieršaja zamova, atrymanaja praz ProZ.com, bolš čym całkam pakryvaje hadavy ŭniosak.
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!
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 is not only our workplace, it's also a worldwide, developing community of people in translation business.

Add enjoyment to your work
I thank ProZ.com team members & moderators for their active support.
Congratulations and thank you very much for your hard work.
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.
As an old song used to say, more or less, "Jeepers, creepers... where�d ya get them... 'ideas'"? These new features are simply fantastic and they work beautifully. My platinum membership is worth every dollar.

I would not be a translator without you guys!
Po kilku latach bezpłatnego członkostwa zdecydowałam się zmienić swój status na członka płatnego i… żałuję, że tak długo zwlekałam!
ProZ.com is echt de beste website/verzamelplaats voor vertalers en iedereen die werkt met taal. Ik ben onlangs ook begonnen het gratis Proz invoicing systeem te gebruiken, en het is fantastisch! Ga vooral zo door!
ProZ.com has opened for me a completely new market, complementary to my existing one. I've learnt to apply new tools for marketing, business (software and systems) and translation.
Sì- è un buon investimento per le ragioni già ampiamente esposte, e non dimenticare che il costo è scaricabile dal reddito imponibile !

Grand Merci! J'apprécie énormément l'aide que ProZ.com apporte aux traducteurs à travers le monde entier. Toutes mes félicitations et je vous exhorte à continuer votre excellent travail! Merci Infiniment!
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!
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).
ProZ.com 总是在不断进步,这个网站让我最喜欢的地方就在于及时的回复和翻译工作的高效率。
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!

Glad to be fully on board ProZ.com at last!
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.
