Connect with your friends to find strength in numbers at ProZ.com

If you and other colleagues you know have considered ProZ.com membership but not yet taken that leap, here is a chance to get together as a team, start making use of the benefits, services and client contact at ProZ.com, and to do it for less. In fact, the more people on your team, the more you all save on your investment. You can collectively save up to 240 USD off the regular price of membership when you purchase as a group.



(2) New translation contest open to all: The comic life of a translator


New translation contest open to all: The comic life of a translator

A new translation contest is open for submissions, featuring everyone's favorite cartoon translator, Mox

055. Never trust feedback from translators

For this contest, if you are not a paying ProZ.com member but would like to participate in a language pair where membership is required anyway, you can. See this post for more details: https://www.proz.com/topic/343291

Submit your entry in this contest: https://www.proz.com/translation-contests/59

(3) New Business membership feature in directories: personalize your batch emails

New Business membership feature in directories: personalize your batch emails

Sending mass messages is sometimes necessary when you're working under tight deadlines, but they sometimes lack the level of personalization we all like to add to our emails when trying to attract potential collaborators.

ProZ.com Business members can now add an extra layer of personalization to their batch emails sent from both ProZ Find and the classic directory.

A new button will enable you to insert your recipients' names or usernames (depending on their private settings) in any part of the message (the message itself or even the subject line).


To insert the name, click on the button and the name tag will appear where your cursor was in the body of the text. In the preview of the message, it will look like {name}, but worry not! Once the message is sent, that tag will be replaced by the name or username of the person who receives the message.

For questions or suggestions about this or other features of Business membership, you can reach the ProZ.com Business team at business@proz.com.

(4) Have you tried the new job posting form?

Have you tried the new job posting form?

A modernized job posting form has been released, featuring a wizard-like step by step form making it easier to add all the information relevant to your job.


You will see if you're missing anything or if there's an error in each section before you move on to the next, letting you pinpoint these errors quicker and fixing them before you've gone through more sections.

Right before posting you will see if there are any inconsistencies or if you forgot about something in the review section; and if there are inconsistencies between your contact information in the form and in your Blue Board record, you will be able to choose which to use. Later, you can contact site staff if you need to update any information on the Blue Board record you might have realized was out of date.

Give it a try when you post your next language services need: https://www.proz.com/post-translation-job
