Find premium clients
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.

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.

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!
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.

The overwhelming majority of my customers find me through ProZ.com, so to me it makes economic sense.
Shukrani kwa ProZ.com kwa kunipa fursa kubwa ambayo sijawahi kupata kabla, nimejifunza mengi kutoka kwenye kozi za mafunzo ya kulipia na vikao vya mikutano ya bure, wafanyakazi wa ProZ.com daima wamekuwa wasaidizi wazuri mno kwangu, mfumo wao wa uendeshaji ni rahisi kutumia na umeniongezea SEO yangu, idadi ya wateja wangu na wageni inaongezeka kwa kasi.
ProZ.com то не только удобная площадка для общения с коллегами, но и полезный информационный ресурс. А самое главное — это реальная возможность приобрести новых клиентов.

Bu siteye ödediğim her kuruş helal-i hoş olsun ProZ.com'un artık bir sektör standartı olduğunu düşünüyorum. Ayrıca ProZ.com sertifikasyonu ciddiye alınan bir referans. Müşterilerin hemen hepsini proz.com aracılığı ile buldum. Ekip çok sağlam ve herhangi bir konuda anında cevap veriyorlar ve ellerinden geldiği kadar yardımcı olmaya çalışıyorlar.

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 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.
I am a paid member since 2005. My membership brings me a lot of customers. It seems that it was a very good investment.

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.
One of the main benefits of being a paying member of ProZ.com is having full access to Blue Board information and site forums. What's more, most of my clients have found me via my ProZ.com profile.

One of the best investments a professional translator can make; a great shop window to promote your business, ready advice from the forums, bag/good payer listings on the Blue Board, and web hosting all in one.

Get and give professional advice
ProZ.com is a new higher level society and new way of thinking for translators!
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 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.
ProZ.com is not only our workplace, it's also a worldwide, developing community of people in translation business.

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

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.
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.
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!

Add enjoyment to your work
I think the site is very helpful to translators and I would like to spread the word around, so that every translator could benefit from the high quality of the site and also have the opportunity to share many doubts with other translators.

Po kilku latach bezpłatnego członkostwa zdecydowałam się zmienić swój status na członka płatnego i… żałuję, że tak długo zwlekałam!
Je ne peux pas dire dans quelle proportion mon CA a augmenté suite à mon adhésion car j'ai pratiquement démarré mon activité freelance il y quelques années grâce à Proz. Ou alors il faut dire de 0 à 100% ! car mes premiers clients, je les ai trouvés sur Proz. Ma cotisation était payée (largement) dès mon premier contrat.

ProZ.com è il sito migliore al mondo, dove il nostro lavoro e la loro organizzazione trovano completa armonia. Grazie per quanto avete fatto e quanto farete ancora in futuro
I am lucky that I am high in the directory for my language pair. I get more direct requests than I can keep up with and the rest of my jobs are referrals.

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.

ProZ.com is absolutely great! - As a worldwide translators' network and community it combines everything a translator is longing for. It pushes your business while you are winning new friends and sharing language and translation related questions and experiences with people all over the world.
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.

Thanks ProZ.com! I've managed to get two or three jobs via ProZ.com so I thought it was time you made an honest member of me! Regards, Nick
Totally satisfying. I became a member and it just took 3 months to meet a client. I started gradually by becoming a site member and then a Certified PRO. My investment returned following the first job on ProZ.com.

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!
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!
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!
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.
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...
