FAQ

The regular prices for the Standard and Plus packages are USD $120/yr and USD $180/yr, respectively. Discounts will be available for a limited time during the launch promotion (see http://www.proz.com/professional-membership#buy-now above)

No, a member will still be a member; there will be no change in directory positioning resulting from the introduction of service package options.

The internet is going the way of the cloud, and in principle cloud technology presents the opportunity for the ProZ.com team to take steps to promote the services of ProZ.com members beyond the confines of ProZ.com. Imagine an LSP or client using, say, a mobile app to access you directly for translation or interpreting services, without ever needing to go to ProZ.com. Cloud technology makes that possible, and we have been taking steps in that direction.

Efforts are in the early stages, and in any event, it takes time for habits to change. But we believe this is the future. What we have seen so far is that client activity at TM-Town is increasing, and separately, there are a few agencies already using ProZ.com cloud services to discover the services of ProZ.com members from within their own management systems. (Some of you reading this have been contacted.) We are also in discussions to establish partnerships to promote the translation and interpreting services of ProZ.com members.

The value of the "external client connections" is difficult to quantify at this time. But we can say that membership in one of the "external channels" alone, TM-Town, costs $144 and is included in the Plus package.

Your current TM-Town membership will be synced/extended to match the renewal date of your ProZ.com membership. If you are on a paid monthly plan, your payments will be stopped. If you are on a paid annual plan, you will be refunded the pro rata amount of the remainder of your membership period.

In that case, to be on the safe side, you might want to assume a value of zero for "external channels".

That is the sum total of the value of licenses confirmed so far to be included in the basket. It is planned that more will be added as the Plus package moves forward.

The Plus package will not necessarily be for everyone -- that is why it is being offered separately. Even if you do not purchase the Plus package, you will still benefit from the change being implemented, since the fee for the Standard package has been reduced.

Something close to the difference, yes. But please note that the Plus package is currently being offered at a promotional rate, and the price to upgrade may be higher in the future.

Not necessarily. ProZ.com does reserve the right to raise the cost of the service packages in the future. However, we will not do this lightly, and if rates are raised we will notify you at least 7 business days in advance of your renewal, with clear details on how you can unsubscribe if you so choose.

Yes. Just as the Standard package has been continuously built up over the years, so too will new benefits be added to the Plus package over time.

Although decisions of which package to include a new feature or tool in will be made on a case-by-case basis, it is safe to assume that the majority of ProZ.com investment will be made in increasing the value of the Plus package to members.

Most professionals earn back their membership several times over from clients met through the site during the course of a year, regardless of the rates they charge. Those that do not are often not looking for new clients (and therefore are not dissatisfied).

In other words, ProZ.com works for most professional translators, but if it does not work for you then you will not be a long-term member of the community. In that case we have no interest in taking your money.

You would submit a form indicating how much, if any, you did earn from clients met via the site, and agreeing to close out your membership and your profile. Your "lost" money would then be refunded, less original payment fees. (See details.)

The nature of some of the services offered in the Plus package means that third-party licenses, payments to trainers and other partners may be made by ProZ.com at the time of your membership purchase, and those will not necessarily be refundable to ProZ.com. Instead of a pro-rated refund on your Plus package, you will be offered the option to switch to the Standard package. However, if you are in any way unsatisfied with your Plus package experience, please contact a member of the site team, we want to hear from you.

As time goes by, these alternative payment options are being selected by users less and less. The overhead involved in managing the complex combinations of parameters ("6-month partial jobs membership", etc.) seems to no longer be justified.

Partial membership types will no longer be available for purchase, but existing memberships will continue as-is until they expire.

Yes. To upgrade to the Standard package click here. To upgrade to the Plus package click here.

It will no longer be possible for non-members to purchase access to Blue Board records, or to buy the right to quote on a one-off basis (for $1). Other changes may also be considered (but none have been decided upon as of yet).

Thank you for investing in ProZ.com on a long-term basis. We have considered the case of those who, like you, have invested in long-term membership, and we wanted to do something special for you. We decided to simply award you the Plus package for a year at no charge. If you like it, then yes, we would ask you to pay an upgrade fee.

We are evaluating corporate / business membership, just as professional membership has been evaluated, but we have not decided on any specific changes at this time.

We would like to provide some value for the browniz you hold. The new low price for the Standard package is actually lower than even the browniz-discounted price had been. Nevertheless, will see what can be done. (There is a small challenge, in that we are using a new payment system and it doesn't yet accept browniz points 😊. Nevertheless, we will see what can be done.)

It is possible to cash out your remaining wallet balance while buying either of the service packages.

Yes. ProZ.com will continue to support various other payment methods including Western Union, wire transfer, local payments (where accepted), 2Checkout, check, and money order. However, please note that: (1) Prices may be higher when using other payment methods. (2) Your membership will not renew automatically.

For one thing, we are making a significant investment in ProZ.com's mission -- and hence in the careers of ProZ.com members and translators in general -- and we want to make sure the industry takes notice. Secondly, when it comes to our mission of providing you with tools and opportunities to expand your business and do better work, sometimes we need you to help us help you -- by making sure that your profile data is up to date. This contest is meant to encourage tens of thousands of translators to make sure that their profile data is fresh and current.

Anyone who purchases either the Standard or Plus packages during the promotional period will be entered in the drawing and have a chance to win. It is also possible to be entered in the drawing by sending a postcard to the ProZ.com office. In either case, you must complete all the "required" portions of your ProZ.com profile in order to have a chance to win. (See additional terms and conditions of the giveaway).

One Apple Watch (Series 2), with a value of up to $300, will be given away each week during the promotional period. Purchase your service package by midnight on Friday for a chance to win that week's prize. (If you don't win one week, you still have a chance to win the next.)

In addition to those, a brand new Nissan Juke car, with a value of up to $25,000 will be awarded to one lucky winner at the end of the year. "Experience the freedom of being a freelancer, in your new Juke!" (See details.)

Well, yes. We would love to be able to share a picture of you with your prize, along with your freelancer story.

To purchase the Standard package click here. To purchase the Plus package click here.

The Plus package began its rollout of services on November 15th. Some of its services are still being released. To see these new services in depth and to follow along with the rollout, please see http://www.proz.com/about-plus-package

You can see your membership type, renewal dates, subscription and billing information, and manage details of your ProZ.com membership on the membership management page, http://www.proz.com/manage-membership (mouse over your name at the top of any site page and select the option "Manage membership" to see these details).

Yes, you can switch, but instead of cash being returned, your membership period is extended by 25%. (So if you have four months of membership remaining with the Plus package, you can exchange it for five months with the Standard package.)

The ProZ.com site team is here to serve you.

Thank you for considering an investment in your freelance business through ProZ.com membership.
