Personally, being a ProZ.com member and using the website has made the difference for me as a translator and the fact that I am today a very successful translator is entirely due to my membership. In the last few years, I have tripled my production and my income. I work when I want and where I want.

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.
I have been a paying member for about 9 months. During that time I have met more than new 10 clients, most of them paying really well and usually on time.
I was a non-paying guest at first and noted a difference afterwards which is worth every cent of the membership fee. Besides obtaining several jobs (at fair rates and without having any KudoZ at first), I have gained some regular clients over the past 18 months. Some of them contacted me directly from the directory.
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.
ProZ.com è il sito migliore al mondo, dove il nostro lavoro e la loro organizzazione trovano completa armonia.
It has always been very useful for me. I would recommend anyone to join ProZ.com. I got there some of my most exciting jobs. I even became a supplier for interpreting services for a very big multinational through 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.
I have acquired 60% of the total number of my clients via ProZ.com. The site is extremely efficient and is visited by serious outsourcers. Therefore, I will stay with the site!
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.

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 et mon travail et surtout d'apprendre un tas de choses sur notre métier.
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.
Being for over 10 years a ProZ.com member, now I cannot imagine a day without visiting the site. It became a part of my daily activities. It was one of the most valuable investments I made during my presence in the translation industry.
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.

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.

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.
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.

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.

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.

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!

Sì- è un buon investimento per le ragioni già ampiamente esposte, e non dimenticare che il costo è scaricabile dal reddito imponibile !

A ProZ.com tagsággal járó előnyök azonban megnyitották előttem a világot, és pár év alatt kiterjedt nemzetközi ügyfélkörre tettem szert. Az évek során rengeteg érdekes emberrel ismerkedtem meg személyesen is a Proz.com rendezvényein, akik mindig nagyon segítőkészek, lelkesek, és a világra nyitottak voltak.

ProZ.com me llena de estímulo, alegría, aprendizaje. Me da la posibilidad de conocer colegas, trabajar, recibir la ayuda que tantas veces se necesita. Gracias por lo cambios en el área de trabajos, los he utilizado en muchas ocasiones y son maravillosos!

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 !!!
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!

Już drugi rok jestem pełnoprawnym członkiem ProZ.com. Uzyskałam dostęp do wielu nowych funkcji, możliwość wystąpienia z prośbą o przyznanie Certyfikacji PRO, a przede wszystkim zwiększyła się moja widoczność jako tłumacza, co umożliwiło mi nawiązanie wielu nowych kontaktów. Grazie ProZ.com!
Glad to be fully on board ProZ.com at last!
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.

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.

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.

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.
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.
ProZ.com is my main “marketing tool”. I have no doubt that ProZ.com has contributed tremendously to my professional growth, and not just because of my profile, but also because of the site's excellent tools and resources. I am very happy with ProZ.com services. I guess what I am trying to say is: Wow, I’m impressed!
After several years of free membership I decided to change its status to a paid member ... and I regret that I waited so long!
