What members have said about ProZ.com translation contests
This was my first translation contest ever and I didn't expect to win. Taking part in it was already a nice experience! For someone who's relatively new to the translation business, this is like a wish come true.
It was fun to translate [the contest source text] because it presents a certain idea or principle in many different ways (and words) and thereby reveals whether the translator has full command of his/her target language.
