Lori Thicke

Lori Thicke has worked in languages for over 20 years. In 1986 she founded the Paris-based Lexcelera, the first translation company in France to receive ISO 9001:2000 quality certification. In 1993 she co-founded Traducteurs sans frontières to provide pro bono translations to support global aid work. In 2010, Lori founded Translators without Borders, now the world's largest community of humanitarian translators. As a U.S.-based 501 (c) 3 non-profit association, Translators without Borders supports global aid organizations by donating millions of words of professional translations each year. With the creation of its translator training centre in Nairobi, Kenya, Translators without Borders is actively taking down language barriers to knowledge for some of the world's most disadvantaged people. Lori, who holds an MFA from the University of British Columbia, is a frequent speaker and blogger on the issue of fighting poverty with information in the right language.
