IMG_6272LocWorld is coming to Dublin in June and the KantanMT team are once again planning to bring together the toughest and smartest localization professionals, to challenge themselves in a Flag Challenge and Coastal Treasure Hunt hike to raise funds for the well known translation and localization NGO, Translators Without Borders.

For those of you who might remember, when LocWorld came to Dublin in 2014, many companies from the industry braved the (wet and windy) Irish weather to be the first to plant their company flag at the top of Djouce, Wicklow’s highest mountain. The event, Mountain Flag Challenge raised more than €10,000 for Pádraig Schäler.

This year, we invite companies to once again challenge themselves in a charity coastal hike around the magnificent Howth Peninsula in North Dublin. The 10km trail covers a variety of flora and fauna both inland and along the coast, and for those literature buffs, we will pass by Balscadden House, home to the famous Irish Poet, W.B Yeats from 1880 – 1883. While, James Joyce fans will get to see where Leopold Bloom brought Molly Bloom on their first date, and later proposed.


Save the Date: Saturday 11th June 10am – 3pm

What: Flag Challenge Coastal Treasure Hunt – Is your company the best when it comes to engaging Global Customers?

Why: To raise money for Translators Without Borders, Translation and Localization NGO

Where: Howth, Dublin

Participation Fee: Company Teams €1000 per team (Four people on each team), €100 for Individuals – all money raised goes to Translators Without Borders.

Afterwards, KantanMT and LocWorld will host the teams for some well-deserved food and traditional entertainment in an Irish Pub where the challenge winners will be announced and celebrated!
