I haven’t received translation work through LinkedIn. I have been thinking of cancelling my membership, though taking part in two groups (Translation Agencies – Good, Bad, and Cheap + Unacceptable Translation Rates Naming and Shaming Group) has been quite useful.

Not sure yet.
Incidentally, for the first time ever, an agency contacted me this past week for potential translation work through LinkedIn.
Enquiries through my website usually stem from searches in proz.com, but I don't have any link to my LinkedIn profile here. So I am not sure how the agency found me. I will ask them if I ever get work, but I suspect it's because we have something in common in our respective profiles.
I should know shortly whether I am shortlisted. If not,

I should know shortly whether I am shortlisted. If not, they will have made a mistake, of course.

One of my best projects, actually. Aug 29, 2020

It's definitely not a common occurrence, but one of the most exciting projects I've ever worked on came to me through LinkedIn, so I can't really complain.

I have received proposals for partner of LPSs to link my posts to their social media.

The very few people who I've heard stating they did are paying users of LinkedIn. I don't think non-paying users can consider LinkedIn but another social media platform.

No, but Aug 29, 2020

Some clients checked my profile before sending me work, so it helped.

Absolutely! Aug 29, 2020

It's my biggest direct client generator, mostly through active acquisition. I earn thousands of euros per year working for clients whom I found (or who found me) on LinkedIn

not on LinkedIn Aug 29, 2020

I'm not on LinkedIn and have never really considered joining.
My husband joined and has had nothing at all.
He is not a paying member, so maybe that also counts.

Yes Aug 29, 2020

I have had a few enquiries via my Linkedin profile over the years and one of those ended up becoming a semi-regular client.

Probably, but I'm not sure. I have certainly been contacted for potential jobs through LinkedIn, but I don't remember if any of that has resulted in actual work.
Sometimes clients also check my profile on various platforms or send me work years after the initial contact, so it's hard to tell where exactly did it come from.
