UNDP Canada - Climate change adaptation facility (CCAF):

The CCAF is working with a group of six project countries, three of which are francophone. Each of these country teams are working on a national initiative related to climate change adaptation. Since half of the countries are francophone (Mali, Niger and Haiti), two are Anglophone (Cambodia and Sudan), and the last is Lusaphone (Cape Verde – though they work sometimes in French), translation is a critical component of this sharing and learning process.

Layse Farias, Partnerships Coordinator: “… we were especially impressed by her determination and self-discipline. Her willingness to contribute meant her work was always consistent, of excellent quality, and on time. Her translations from Spanish to French were of a high quality and she looked beyond just the translations of words and actually suggested ideas for the format of the text she was translating. We found Lucile a pleasure to work with. I am grateful for her contributions to our office and very confident that she has the work ethic and communications skills to add value wherever she works.”
