Translation of Geocache to English

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am wondering if there is a way to translate a Geocache into English?

I am going to travel to Europe and need to know how to translate the geocaching pages.

Thanks,

~Darlene~

The best I can recommend is copy-pasting the description into Google Translate. Alternatively, copy-paste the geocache URL into google translate, and it'll translate the whole cache page (note that this only works for basic-member-accessible caches).

Having geocached in 16 countries in Europe, and as an English speaker, I haven't found that having some cache listings only written in some language other than English is really a problem.  There are plenty of caches that *are* in English, or can be found without reading the cache description,  or a google translate of the cache page is sufficient to find the ache, and I have never felt that I've needed to "find them all".

This question comes up every couple months; there are a lot of resources out there if you check older discussions.

Google translate gets you understanding the basics for all caches (it doesn't always recognize slang). 

I'd do the research of puzzles and similar caches ahead of time at home.  Most here don't read simpler 1.5 and under hides.
