Hello there! We’re sorry. At the moment we are experiencing some bugs with our signup form. This can have multiple reasons: Browser, updates, bugs in the code, non-compatibility between plugins, wrong settings that are causing trouble. It will take some time to find out what’s going on. We know how annoying it can be, when a website doesn’t function properly. For now, we can only offer a quick fix, should the form below not work for you: Send us an email (1mm@the-translators.com) with your sign up (first name, last name, email) or your request for your private link. We will be sure to answer your email asap. Thank you!

Frequently asked questions

Who may participate?

You may only participate if you are a translator or interpreter. This is a challenge that serves to raise awareness for our profession.

I missed the start date, can I still participate?

Yes, you can join us at any time during the challenge. You may also include any miles that you have accomplished between May 1, 2016 and the time you joined.

How can I add my miles?

Once you’ve signed up, you will be listed as a contributor on our Participants page. When you sign up, you will receive an email to confirm your participation. This email will contain a private link with which you can update your total miles.

What about the challenge on Endomondo?

We created the challenge on Endomondo as well. Here, you can basically see your total miles and track your own progress. However, you will still have to update your total miles on our website. We will remind you every quarter to do so.

What about other platforms, such as Strava?

We have decided to only maintain the challenge on Endomondo and we’ve simplified the update process of your contribution by providing the private link when you sign up. This challenge is a voluntary project and we try to keep everybody’s effort to participate as low as possible, including our own.

How do you make sure that nobody cheats?

Well, aside from checking whether or not participants really are translators or interpreters, we pretty much can’t check if someone is adding more miles that they really accomplished. So we have to trust each and every participant to play fair. Thanks for keeping it real!
