I get occasional approaches through my ProZ.com profile, which in itself makes it worthwhile, because one smallish job covers your membership fee. I also use the invoicing feature and free website hosting, so it saves me money in those areas. As others have said the Blue Board is useful and could help you avoid some major headaches. ProZ.com also has a very high rating in Google, so your profile or KudoZ questions you have asked or answered (which will link through to your profile) are likely to come up in web searches, thereby increasing your visibility.

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!
Članstvo na Prozu otvara vrata potpuno novog, fantastičnog sveta za prevodioce zbog toga što vas klijenti tretiraju ozbiljnije i što dobijate više poslovnih ponuda.
I have had a lot more profitable work since I joined ProZ.com last year,
and can pick and choose my jobs now, which is a great luxury.
Being a member has enabled me to contact many new clients, most of which I now receive regular work from. Next to professional qualifications, ProZ.com membership is the best investment a translator can make.
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.
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.
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.

ProZ.com was the best partner to start out my autonomous activity after a life (almost) as an employee.
ProZ.com membership is 1000x worth the cost! I wouldn't give up the unlimited Blue Board access for anything... ProZ.com is a great website.

Soy miembro desde 2008, los logros a todo nivel fueron muchísimos, fundamentalmente utilizando las herramientas que nos brinda ProZ.com que busca perfeccionarse y jerarquizar así nuestra profesión.
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!

The investment in membership has consistently paid itself off, both through new clients and perhaps even more importantly access to the Blue Board.
ProZ.com è il sito migliore al mondo, dove il nostro lavoro e la loro organizzazione trovano completa armonia.
I would certainly recommend becoming a ProZ.com member. I have been able to get many jobs through ProZ.com. It's "before and after" for a translator who wishes to remain a freelancer. I cannot wait to renew my membership whenever it's due. Think about this: normally "one" project pays the annual fee.

Get and give professional advice
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.
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.

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

Add enjoyment to your work
ProZ.com has certainly given me a boost and is stimulating my will to explore new worlds and opportunities. And to go ahead.
Avant tout, ProZ.com représente pour moi une plate-forme d’échanges internationale permettant de côtoyer d’autres traducteurs via les forums et les formations. J’apprécie également la possibilité de pouvoir obtenir des informations sur les agences de traduction et les donneurs d’ordre en général grâce au Blue Board (certes non exhaustif, mais ô combien utile !), et de l’aide en cas de besoin avec les KudoZ. De plus, grâce à ProZ.com, j’ai trouvé un client avec lequel je travaille régulièrement : espérons que cela ne soit que le début d’une longue série!
ProZ.com was my only way of being independent while waiting for working papers to come through (which they didn't in 3 years!)...After that, I just stick to it and I will remain to do so because it has since become my "workplace".

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...
The site definitely helped me to extend my business as a freelancer. This surely helped me to "make much more money" than I earned before registration at the site. And I guess I am not the only one who met clients and established new business relations via ProZ.com.
I have joined the ProZ community in March this Year, and believe me in just 3 months I have felt like being a part of a family which is always there to support me for my betterment. Offers are on a rise, as well as the rates. It is this membership which has given me a forum which also had a positive impact on my personality. I am much-much more confident and ready for challenges which was not there earlier.
I thank ProZ.com team members & moderators for their active support.
Congratulations and thank you very much for your hard work.
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 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...
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!
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 membership opened up the world for me, and within a couple of years I managed to obtain an extensive international clientele. Throughout the years I met many interesting people.

اشتركت في بروز.كوم منذ تسع سنوات، ومنذ تسع سنوات والفائدة لا تنقطع.
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 have been a paying member for a year by now and my second year just started. I see a great change in the number of my clients whom I contacted via Proz.com.
