“I was proud to receive such an honour from the ATC,” said Lori Thicke, the Founder and CEO of Lexcelera.
“But this award isn’t just for me: it’s recognition of the voluntary work that so many people have done for TWB – the tens of thousands of translators, project managers, interpreters, editors and language service providers who support us.”
According to the ATC website, “Canadian Lori founded translation company Lexcelera in Paris in 1986 and it has since grown to a global organisation with offices in London, Paris, Vancouver, Buenos Aires and Singapore.
