Benefits of Proford membership

Proford (Association of Professional Language Service Providers) sets out to represent the interests of language service providers that offer high-quality services, have a developed corporate structure and have been operating stably for several years, and to provide them with a platform for exchange of experiences and knowledge. The association’s events and relations between the members contribute greatly to extending the member’s involvement in the industry, going above and beyond the trade advocacy role performed by the association.

How can I become a Proford member?

The association reserves the right to only admit those language service providers that satisfy the minimum requirements below as members. Fulfilment of the criteria does not automatically mean that a company can become a Proford member. We invite companies wishing to join to give a presentation about their company at the general meeting of the association. The members of the association decide by majority vote, based on fulfilment of the entry criteria, the presentation given and the question-and-answer session, on whether to admit the language service provider as a member.
