The clients who have found me on ProZ.com form about three quarters of my clientele. It has been a tremendous help to me.
ProZ.com was the main factor in my gradual gravitation towards becoming a freelance translator. ProZ.com is where a good share of my clients found me. Becoming a full member was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
A sound return on investment, I would say. :)
ProZ.com es la plataforma por excelencia que permite al traductor encontrar más trabajo. En este espacio profesional uno encuentra además la respuesta a toda pregunta relacionada con la traducción. Cada actividad organizada por ProZ.com es impecable y 100% fiable. Realmente vale la pena pagar la cuota de membresía anual.
Članstvo na Prozu otvara vrata potpuno novog, fantastičnog sveta za prevodioce zbog toga što vas klijenti tretiraju ozbiljnije i što dobijate više poslovnih ponuda.
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.
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 have a very satisfying number of clients in Spain, as well as in several countries in South America, thanks to ProZ.com. The positive client feedback I have received in the Willingness to Work Again section of my profile has also seemed to help me stand out to potential clients.
For me everything changed after I became a paying member of ProZ.com... I cannot think of any other investment I have made in my business which has generated nearly as much income as the ProZ.com membership has.
Nie mogłabym już pracować bez pomocy koleżanek i kolegów z KudoZ. To bardzo fachowy portal.
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. Moreover, ProZ.com PRO certification is taken seriously by many customers as a reliable confirmation of your skills. I have found almost all of my clients through ProZ.com. Website team are real pros. They instantly take care of your queries and do their best as a help desk.
Som platiaci člen od roku 2005. Členstvo mi prináša mnoho zákazníkov. Zdá sa, že to bola veľmi dobrá investícia.
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.
Initially, I doubted if my membership investment would represent a benefit. Well, I broke even after 2-3 months of becoming a member!
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. I would especially encourage you to try to answer KudoZ questions. This will help you build your research skills and demonstrate your competence to fellow translators.
Get and give professional advice
ProZ.com is a new higher level society and new way of thinking for translators!
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
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.
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 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!
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 not only our workplace, it's also a worldwide, developing community of people in translation business.
Add enjoyment to your work
Je suis satisfait d'être membre payant. J'ai même rempilé pour 5 ans.
Sì- è un buon investimento per le ragioni già ampiamente esposte, e non dimenticare che il costo è scaricabile dal reddito imponibile !
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?
Become a ProZ.com member (the membership fee will definitely pay off), answer KudoZ questions, get some WWA and don't forget to fill out your profile completely.
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!
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!
Mil gracias ProZ.com por darme la posibilidad de vivir de mi profesión, relacionarme con colegas y clientes, hacer consultas, brindar respuestas y capacitarme, todo siempre dentro de un marco de colaboración y respeto.
अनुवाद से आनेवाली मेरी आमदनी का अधिकांश प्रोज.कॉम के जरिए आता है। प्रोज.कॉम का सदस्य बनने के बाद मेरी आर्थिक स्थति इतनी मजबूत हुई कि मैं अपनी अच्छी-खासी पूर्णकालिक नौकरी छोड़कर पूरा समय फ्रीलांस हिंदी अनुवाद को देने की हिम्मत कर सका।
I am really glad this web site exists!
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.
En lo personal, considero que la inscripción en ProZ.com es una de las mejores inversiones de mi vida.
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.
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!
Stubborn, individual, liberal Swedish moderator
ProZ.com serves as the channel to go international. Before joining this site, my clients were mainly local post-graduate students. After joining this site, I can reach both national and international clients.
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!
