LocInPink - your breast cancer advocate in the localization industry

Locinpink is a non-profit initiative that aims to raise awareness about breast cancer in the localization industry.

Sometimes all it takes is a spark

LocInPink was born in October 2022 during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It all started when I reached out and asked some localization friends and colleagues to join a Pink at Work event, after several years of supporting the cause locally and partly because of family history with cancer. Before I knew it, the word had spread further and a whole lot more language professionals and language service providers had joined, posting pictures in pink with the #locinpink hashtag to raise awareness about breast cancer.

Over the past months, other events have taken place and the initiative has received so much love and support from the localization community, which gives me more reason to move it forward.

Thank you for being an active part of the LocInPink community.

What we do makes a difference and we have to decide what kind of difference we want to make.

This is the kind of difference LocInPink wants to make. Thank you for being part of it.

According to World Health Organization (WHO), breast cancer is currently the most common cancer globally, accounting for 12.5% of all new annual cancer cases worldwide. In other words, 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her life.

Even though breast cancer is one of the better-known and probably more-talked-about cancers, there are still a lot of misconceptions around it and many women still have not made mammograms and ultrasound screenings part of their healthcare routine.

LocInPink’s mission is to keep the breast cancer conversation going all year round, by serving as a platform where localization people can access breast cancer resources and information and share their stories and experiences, ultimately becoming a champion for the breast cancer cause and creating a community of solidarity, empathy and hope.
