Who can participate?

Entry submission is limited to members, but non-members can still rate and vote for their favorite entries.

How about a source text in X language? translation contests depend on the collaboration of participants in many aspects--voting, commenting, submitting entries, and also in finding suitable source texts in various languages (especially languages in which no member of the site team is native). You can help ensure source texts in a variety of languages for future contests by proposing a text in your native language here.
