What are the benefits of participating in the network?
Participating in the ProZ.com Certified PRO Network will provide a powerful new means for top professionals to distinguish themselves as such, through not only demonstration of their unique capabilities (in keeping with published industry standards), but also through peer/client/supplier review and, perhaps soon, verified track records. In time, this network will provide an easier way for top professionals and top companies to meet and do work, particularly when that work has to be done right and is paid accordingly.
What are the requirements for getting certified?
Note: ProZ.com professional membership is required for admittance into the Certified PRO Network for freelance translators and ProZ.com business membership is required for businesses; beyond that, there is no additional charge for participation.
Screening for the network is now continuous. To date there are:
4800ProZ.com Certified PRO freelancers
I am very impressed with the professional approach, as well as the speed with which this initiative is progressing.
The program presentation shows that it has been well thought out, with ample opportunity for discussion and feedback.
I firmly believe there is a need to distinguish qualified, experienced translation professionals and am happy to play any part I can in supporting that.
