We did not expect to be ready this quick, but cachetur.no (you may use cacheplanner.com if that’s easier for you to remember 😉 ) is now ready for international use!

The site itself is fully translated (proofreading and polishing is ongoing), and fully usable in English. We would like to use this blog post to tell you a bit about cachetur.no, and thank the people that has made this possible. I can’t write any further, without recognizing the amount of work and (very) late nights cghove has put into this translation project.

Cachetur.no is completely free to use

Cachetur.no is run as a non-profit, by myself, thomfre. I have made cachetur.no partly because I need it myself (to be honest), because I want to contribute to the awesome geocaching community and because I really enjoy seeing people use and talk about tools I make. And that’s it. I don’t make any money on this (neither do I want to).

Cachetur.no is completely free to use, for everyone. But due to the geocaching.com API license, you won’t get much use of cachetur.no unless you’re a premium member on geocaching.com.

We don’t have any ads or any nasty tracking cookies. And avoiding that is a part of our vision. We do rely on donations from our users, and from geocaching associations (Norwegian ones up until now). We have been able to keep running like this since we started three years ago. Our users are awesome.

Why cachetur.no?

We believe that geocaching is best when shared with others. And that’s why we made cachetur.no in the first place. Cachetur.no is first and foremost a tool for collaborating with others. A tool where you can create lists, work together on correcting coordinates, add important information and keep track of who’s found what.

When you’re ready to head out, you can either export to GPX, send everything to a list on geocaching.com or print out nice lists you can bring with you.

There are more than three million geocaches in the world. And even though you want to find all of them, there’s no way you can. So with cachetur.no, you can keep track of the caches you want to find. The ones you want to focus on.

What to do if you find a bug or have a suggestion, or just a question

We love hearing from our users, even if it’s a bug report 😉

On every page there’s a “Report/Help” button in the menu, you can simply click on that to open up a contact form. There you can report bugs, make suggestions or ask any question you might have.

You may also ask questions in our Facebook group “Cachetur.no User Forum“. You may also find a lot of information in our Help Center (the translation is still in progress, and proofreading has not started yet).

There is no question that’s more stupid than the ones you don’t ask!

Cachetur.no is made by Norwegians, and the translation have been done by Norwegians. Our English isn’t perfect. So please, do tell us if something looks strange, or should be changed.

A huge thank you to the wonderful people that made this possible

Cachetur.no wouldn’t be possible at all without our users. It wouldn’t be possible without the people that support us financially. And it for sure would have been a lot more difficult for me without the valuable input from my ambassador team.

And to all of you that have told me over and over that I need to make this site available in English, thank you for believing in cachetur.no!

A huge thanks also to LingoHub and WPML for providing us with the tools we need to make this work. LingoHub is a great translation tool, and WPML is the best plugin for multi-lingual WordPress sites.

To all of you, from the bottom of my heart –  THANK YOU!
