ProZ.com 2015 mid-year campaign

The usual ProZ.com mid-year membership campaign, “What is ProZ.com membership?”, is about to end (June 30th, 2015) and, for the first time since I started working in campaigns, I have the feeling that an important part of the ProZ.com community is becoming more and more aware of the site’s mission as well as of the benefits included in site membership.

As the staff member in charge of communicating the benefits of membership campaigns to the community, I was lucky enough to be the direct recipient of hundreds of messages from members who were kind enough to share with me their success stories and details on how their businesses grew thanks to ProZ.com. I also had the opportunity of showing interested users how to use site tools to their benefit and what strategies they can apply to get the most out of it, strategies that not only include membership, but also a nice-looking profile, KudoZ PRO points, specialization and membership in the Certified PRO Network (if you want to learn more about these strategies yourself, click here).

This lively awareness, this knowledge of ProZ.com as the world’s largest community of translators, as a complete suite of tools and opportunities, and members’ willingness to learn more about the site, how it works and what it offers to help them network, expand their businesses, improve their work and have fun is, in my opinion, what has made ProZ.com the leading translation workplace and what keeps the site in first place over fifteen years later.

If you still don’t know what ProZ.com is about or what benefits site membership includes, check the mid-year membership campaign page for details. Those who decide to give ProZ.com membership a try before the campaign ends –yes, only one day left!– will get:

  • A substantial discount over the current regular fee.
  • Full and unrestricted access to all ProZ.com benefits.
  • Membership until July 2016.
  • A money-back guarantee.
  • Personalized assistance from site staff in strategies for using ProZ.com to increase your contact with new clients.
  • A chance at winning great prizes, including a trip to a ProZ.com conference of your choice.

And if you have questions or need help, feel free to contact site staff at any time. We are here to help you.

Special thanks go to site members who volunteered to have the campaign page localized into several languages so that many users can learn what the campaign is about in their own languages; to moderators, site guides and local contacts who made sure site users know there is a campaign running; and to all ProZ.com members, new and old, for making ProZ.com possible through their investment!

Happy translating everyone!

New feature: Translation feedback area 4

A new site area was started this week, to allow translators to share and discuss short translation texts. The idea is to share translations to get opinions and feedback from colleagues, and of course to have fun.

This feature is open to ProZ.com members. To see more about how it works, check out the scope and submission guidelines.
